What is Blood Flow Restriction?
Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) is the use of a blood pressure cuff/tourniquet to safely restrict venous and arterial blood flow from the working muscles at rest or during activity. This is done (accomplished) primarily with low-intensity and low-load resistance training, causing metabolic stress and cellular swelling that replicate the response during high-intensity and high-workload HIIT or another exercise

What are the benefits of Blood Flow Restriction?
