Blood flow restriction (BFR) basically means that you wrap a band around the upper part of one or more specific body parts to restrict the flow of blood to that or those muscles of which you are training. When performing blood flow restriction or ”occlusion” training in the correct manner, the muscle will still have the ability to receive blood flow arterially, but the veins are occluded, rendering the blood partially restricted from leaving the active muscle(s).
When the scenario is as such, it will lead to a certain ”swelling” effect on the muscle; something that has to do with the swelling of cells, which is one of the things happening inside of the muscles when they are stimulated by physical exercise. Also, the restriction of blood flow also causes a build-up of metabolites as lactic acid, which has been shown to have a directly stimulation effect on the growth of muscle tissue. The direct fatigue that the muscles are exposed to, forces the nervous system to recruit the fast-twitch muscle fibers or ”type-II muscle fibers”, which are the ones that have the fastest contraction speed and thus those with the greatest potential for growth.
The ”PRO” BFR Bands are the most popular ones out of the three models. These bands are extra wide. They are all-new, sit at 2 inches wide and are specifically designed to give the best restriction of blood flow through the working limb to the muscles targeted during training session. These Blood Flow Restriction "BFR) bands reduce the supply of oxygen to the muscles, which is what pre-fatigues the slow twich muscle fibers and also diminish their response to loads that they are exposed to during workouts, but enables fast twitch muscle fibers to respond more quickly to exercise and training loads, thus resulting in faster growth of new lean muscle tissue.
Expect increased factors for muscle growth. Clinical studies have shown that BFR training can potentially increase MPS (muscle protein synthesis), NOS-1 expression as well as mTOR signaling, which all results in increased muscle tissue growth. Research has also shown that BFR training is able to boost muscle growth and enhance potential for muscle gain by redcing Myostatin concentrations within the body.
Want quicker lean muslces and superb tone without lifting super heavy weights? Occlusion training bands induce hypertrophy (muscle growth) at very low mechanical resistance loads (usually 10-30% of a 1RM [1 rep max]). When applied to working limbs and paired with mechanical working loads to 10-30% of a 1RM - a lot of repetitions and very low rest until experiencing fatigue - the results that are achieved will typically be similar to those that are achieved with 80% of one rep maximums. With the BFR bands, you can achieve muscle gain and tone up without having to lift super heavy weights thus not risking injury.
The strongest and most comfortable bands available on the market today: the "PRO" BFR Bands are furnished with an extra strong and durable elastic strap as well as a quick-release cam buckle,making them not only easy to both strap up and get off, but also incredibly comfortable to use - a must for performing at your highest level possible.
If you have been forced to improvise using various types of elastic bands or other forms of training equipment such as knee wraps etc. to perform your BFR training, seek no longer: the BFR ”PRO” model is just what you have been needing all of this time.
