What is Blood flow restriction training


A cuff is used to occlude venous blood flow out of a limb while restricting arterial blood flow into a limb during individualised blood flow restriction training. A growing body of research now supports the use of blood flow restriction during rest, in conjunction with aerobic exercise, or in conjunction with low-load resistance exercise to reduce the rate of skeletal muscle atrophy and to improve the hypertrophic and strength responses. This article will teach you more about blood flow restriction training.   Sample Blood Flow Restriction Training Protocol   It might sound too good to be true, but blood flow restriction (BFR) can be used to increase VO2 max when walking or muscle mass while lifting small weights. The truth is that BFR training makes light exercise, such as a stroll through the park, quite challenging. Gains are by no means made simple by this! To get a sense of how difficult BFR is on a general level, watch the video up top. With this sample protocol, Craig is only exercising at 20% of his 1-rep maximum!   Muscle Hypertrophy With Low Loads   It is well acknowledged that high-intensity training using weights that are at least 70% of your 1-rep max or lower (30-50%RM) until failure is necessary for muscular growth. However, there is growing research that suggests blood flow restriction and low-load resistance training (20–40%RM) can similarly promote muscle growth and strength increases. Blood flow restriction research has thrown our understanding of the physiology and hypertrophy of muscle cells on its head. We are discovering that metabolic stress, which is produced by BFR training, can induce hypertrophic changes just as well as mechanical stress!   When an individual is load compromised, blood flow restriction training can be used to promote muscle growth and strength. Blood flow restriction training can be employed in the rehabilitation context as a bridge to enhance muscular strength and growth when a person may not be able to lift greater loads, though we do not advise replacing high load resistance training with it. For instance, as rehabilitation specialists, there is a time following most surgeries and musculoskeletal injuries when we must respect the surgical site and tissue healing timeframes by doing lower load activities. These lighter exercises don't exert enough force on the working muscle to stimulate hypertrophy or increase its strength.
