The gyms may have shut this month, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop training. Lockdown your goals and build muscle at home with Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) Training.

Our Hytro BFR wearables allow you to continue your improvements – even if you don’t have access to heaps of gym equipment at home. That’s because with BFR Training you don’t need weights to make gains. Working at just 20-30% of your one-rep max creates the optimal conditions for muscle growth, supercharging strength and giving you the pump of your life in the process.

As soon as you strap in with Hytro, blood pools in the working muscles. A low oxygen environment is created, which places the muscle under stress and causes it to recruit fast-twitch muscle fibres. This then produces lactic acid and metabolites, which ultimately result in the increased release of growth hormone and increased rate of muscle protein synthesis – reactions that usually only occur with heavyweight workouts.

Think of it as an effective trick on the body. Elite sport has already caught onto the benefits of BFR. Scores of athletes use the training method to maintain muscle mass when weights aren’t available, to enhance their training programmes and to speed up their rehabilitation.

Whether used as a solo session or as a finisher at the end of a workout, BFR is proven to be one of the best ways to build muscle with or without weights. One exercise per body part is enough to maximally stimulate the muscle fibres, meaning workouts last between 10-20 minutes and making it perfect for those who are tight on time.
