Blood Flow Restriction Training

We know through research that, in order to truly achieve improvements in muscular strength and size, we must use loads and intensities that generate enough of a stimulus to cause tissue change (most research indicates using > 65% of your 1-rep max for any given movement). However, what happens when loads like this can’t be used? What about post-surgical conditions, or situations where we need to protect healing tissues? What if one wanted to achieve maximal sports performance and work capacity outside of the presence of an injury, or even improve aerobic capacity? Enter Blood Flow Restriction Training.

What It Treats

Blood Flow Restriction Training in Kansas City can help with:

  • Rehabilitation & injury recovery
  • Improving performance, muscle hypertrophy, and work capacity
  • Maximizing outcomes both pre and post-surgery
  • Minimizing muscle loss post-surgery and enhancing tissue healing (including bone healing, tendon/ligament healing)
  • Improving aerobic capacity
  • Improving recovery capacity from training

How Blood Flow Restriction Training Works

Blood Flow Restriction (or BFR) utilizes a cuff placed on the upper or lower extremities to briefly restrict the arterial and venous blood flow either during rest or while performing an exercise in order to achieve significant improvements in muscular size and strength while using significantly lower loads on the tissue.

The results of this brief occlusion has numerous physiological and metabolic effects (both local and systemic) that lead to this improvement in hypertrophy, as well as tissue healing and recovery, and aerobic capacity.
