Blood Flow Restriction (BFR), like the feeling of any new exercise regime, may take time to get used to.
Safe and Practical, wearable BFR products.
BFR shorts and tees designed and tested in partnership with elite Athletes & Coaches.
Ensure the BFR strap is at the very top of your limb, and pull the strap out to its full length.
Ease back to the required tightness (based on the type of BFR training protocol).
Align and secure the Hytro tab on the Velcro patch.
Firmly rub the Hytro tab to ensure the Velcro mechanism is engaged.
Repeat on the other limb. Take note of your strap setting using the numbering system on the sleeve.
BFR is an intense experience so expect to feel uncomfortable, with sensations of tingling or throbbing, especially while you exercise.
As your limbs swell with blood, they may become flushed and discoloured. This is completely normal and safe.
If you do not feel pressure building up or throbbing in the limb, the straps are too loose. Increase tightness and start again.
If you feel pain, or extreme tingling or numbness in the limb, the straps are too tight. Reduce tightness and start again. If pain persists, STOP and consult your GP.
