B STRONG’s blood flow restriction bands were featured in an Instagram post from Mark Wahlberg while he was undertaking a 45-day fitness challenge. Mark mentioned that he used B STRONG’s BFR bands in his fitness workouts for the blood flow restriction benefits.
B STRONG is a proprietary implementation of Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) training — an exercise technique that manipulates the body’s circulatory system, and when combined with exercise, produces rapid gains in strength and fitness using light-weights, and in a very short period of time.
- BFR bands are worn around the upper portion of the arms and/or legs to safely slow the blood in the limb.
- Simple, low-load exercise produces profound muscle “burn” comparable to intense anaerobic training.
- This strong fatigue triggers a natural, robust, hormonal cascade, which in turn produces hypertrophy and strength gains on par with heavy exercise or traditional weight lifting.
- The hormones circulating in the blood stream benefit all areas of the body that were working.
