BFR Bands

BFR Bands® is a manufacturer of occlusion bands used for so-called occlusion training - also known as BFR training (Bloodflow Restriction Training). In this form of training, venous blood flow from the trained muscles back to the heart is prevented or at least greatly reduced by tying off the trained arm or leg, which results in an accumulation of blood in the trained muscle. This results not only in a strong pump, but also in an accumulation of metabolites in the muscle, which is one of the three most important stimuli for muscle growth. A BFR or occlusion training allows the trainee to generate a strong growth stimulus with relatively light training weights, which protects joints, ligaments and tendons and enables recovery training after injuries.
