Alpine Academy, a program that supports young drivers to develop their career, uses the Hytro BFR wearables in both training and recovery to improve performance.
Alpine Academy is a program with a mission, their hope is to develop one of the young driver athletes into a Formula 1 champion. They have been utilising the Hytro BFR wearables during the athlete drivers’ training and also during their recovery sessions, finding them a quick and effective way to incorporate BFR into their programming.
David Thompson, Head of Human Performance at BWT Alpine F1 Team said: “Everyone knows the demands on the F1 circuit – especially the next generation of drivers. Having a product like Hytro that can deliver the physiological benefits of Blood Flow Restriction in an accessible and safe way is hugely beneficial to our driver athletes. We are already seeing performance benefits from training and recovery using Hytro garments, and we look forward to converting these in to results on track.”

Dr Warren Bradley, the founder of Hytro, joined Max Solomon of the Science for Sport Podcast to discuss the use of Blood Flow Restriction in elite sport. Dr Warren talks all about BFR, the science behind it and more.
After sustaining a back injury, professional rugby league player Charlie Willett was ruled out of the 2020/21 season. This year she has had to learn how to shift her mindset and practices to recover effectively with BFR and perform at her best.
