Blood Flow Restriction Therapy
What is Blood flow restriction therapy (BFRT)
Blood flow restrictions therapy is an innovative training method used for the development of muscle strength, combining venus occlusion and low-load resistance training. BFRT uses muscle anaerobic metabolism causing cellular swelling which increases muscle growth. BFRT uses a doppler or torniquete similar to blood pressure cuffs. You can also use an elastic band, the goal is to occlude 50-80% of blood flow to a specific muscle using higher repetitions in order to achieve muscle fatigue and improve muscle growth.
