Petey Performance Podcast invited Dr Warren to chat Blood Flow Restriction

Peter Wright of Petey Performance Podcast welcomed the founder of Hytro BFR, Dr Warren Bradley, to talk all about Blood Flow Restriction and how Hytro BFR wearables make it an accessible and powerful recovery tool.

The Petey Performance Podcast recently invited Dr Warren Bradley to join their latest episode to hear what it is like to start a science-based sports brand, how the Hytro BFR wearables were created as a solution to unaccessible Blood Flow Restriction Training and how safety has been built in so the products can be used unsupervised to create an efficient training and recovery tool. 

 

Peter Wright began by asking Dr Warren about the startup of Hytro and the design of the BFR wearables to ensure safety. Dr Warren Bradley shared: “I applied for the patent several years before, put everything in place that I could and found the right people to go into business with.” 

 

He went on to add: “We spent over 12 months doing research and development. It took over 13 iterations, for example getting the angling of the mechanism right to ensure it contoured the bicep perfectly. We have created a product that is always in the right position, if you put our product on it is always going to be proximal”.

 

Blood Flow Restriction, as a general strength and conditioning tool, was then discussed more broadly. Dr Bradley explained: “BFR is an incredible technique that not many people are utilising, and everyone should be utilising it. Whether you are an athlete, a coach, you have got sarcopenia or osteopenia, or cancer, provided there is no contraindication, because of how incredible the stimulus is.”

 

Discussing BFRs use in recovery, Dr Warren advised: “BFR creates hypoxia, cell swelling, which stimulates the pathway which upregulates muscle protein synthesis so when you unstrap that blood flushes back around the body, all the recovery hormones that were built up in that limb now flood the entire body systemically. This flush removes waste material and inflammation immediately, which would normally take 72 hours to do.”
