Just what can you reap from blood flow restriction training?
BFR training involves performing strength training exercises while restricting blood flow to the extremity being worked. By using just 30% to 50% of the weight you'd normally use, you can reap maximum benefits, such as:
- Stimulating muscle growth and strength in about half the time, using about one-third of the weight, compared to standard weight training.
- Dramatically reducing your risk of muscle injury, as you’re using lighter weights.
- Activating fast-twitch fibers and triggering the release of human growth hormone — just like with high intensity interval training. It’s particularly helpful for those who are getting up in age.
- Forcing more rapid muscle fatigue and muscle failure that leads to subsequent repair and regeneration processes.
