Hytro straps are situated in the garments at precisely the correct place for safe use, based on scientific literature. When using Hytro tops, please make sure the straps are next to the armpit and above the bicep, not on it (see image to the right). For Hytro leggings or shorts, make sure the straps are next to the groin and below the gluteal fold (bottom) and at the top of the thigh.
Strap tightness should be fixed around a subjective measure of 7/10 tightness, where 10/10 is as tight as possible and 5/10 is a mild to moderate squeeze.
There are many ways to utilise and benefit from BFR within your workout. Please see Hytro’s downloadable user guide to determine which is best suited to you.

BFR training is something that you must become accustomed to, and initially, it may feel uncomfortable. It will feel like a throbbing sensation, or for those experienced with lifting, a long and sustained ‘pump’ much like after performing numerous drop sets.
If you are new to BFR, expect to feel muscle soreness after your first few sessions as your body adapts.
BFR is not easy, and some would say not for the faint-hearted, but the benefits are exceptional and worth any potential short-term discomfort.
Despite utilising very light loads to achieve a hypertrophic response using BFR, training intensities may still be relatively high.
BFR training is unique in that it does not produce significant muscle damage, regardless of training intensities, principally because you cannot lift heavy weighted loads. BFR provides a perfect training addition or recovery modality for continued physical development while avoiding muscular damage normally associated with muscle hypertrophy training.
