Working out with BFR

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.
See our training guides above to get started.
