How Chris Billam-Smith uses BFR to maximise recovery

Chris Billam-Smith, professional boxer, uses BFR to make his training camps even more effective.

Chris Billam Smith, professional boxer and Commonwealth, British and European Champion, uses Hytro BFR wearables during his training camps to maximise his recovery and build his endurance.


Billam-Smith says “Hytro has helped me perform better, because it’s helped my recovery massively. Training twice a day then using the straps to help with my recovery has helped me perform day to day.”


Billam-Smith defended his Commonwealth Cruiserweight title in April this year after using Hytro BFR wearables to support his training. He states that “Using Hytro has really helped boost my endurance, allowing me to be more clinical in the championship rounds.”
