Yes, you can get impressive results from Blood Flow Restriction Training using resistance bands, a faster way to make muscles grow. If you’ve been looking for a way to speed up your muscle growth, this is a strategy that you can consider. That said, make sure that you get clearance from your physician to ensure that the Blood Flow Restriction Training is suitable for you.

Before that, read on to find out what you need to know about Blood Flow Restriction Training:

What Is Blood Flow Restriction Training?

Blood Flow Restriction Training, or BFR, is a training technique where the blood flow to a given area is restricted. This is done by wrapping a very tight band around a specific body part. This training technique aims to help increase circulation to the given area. This is done to increase the rate of muscle growth.

According to studies, there are some serious muscle gains that can be expected from blood flow restriction training. Some studies show that the gains from BFR training can be comparable to that of heavyweight training.

There are some who have criticized BFR training, saying that these studies do not have long enough periods to be considered conclusive and that there are studies showing otherwise. In any case, there are some success stories showing that BFR training can be very effective.

What Are the Benefits of BFR Training?

Blood Flow Restriction Training needs to be done correctly to be effective. There are several benefits to BFR training, including:

  • Increased muscle growth
  • Better muscle pump
  • Possible muscle fat loss
  • Better muscle activation

These are the benefits that you can expect from BFR training. As an added benefit, BFR training can also help you improve your blood circulation.

Who Can Do BFR Training?

BFR training is recommended for anyone looking to improve their strength, increase muscle hypertrophy, and get better muscle activation. This is not for beginners, though, as there are some risks involved.

Who Shouldn’t Do BFR Training?

If you have any of the following conditions, you should not do BFR training:

  • Cardiac conditions
  • Severe Bleeding disorders
  • Severe Allergies
  • Severe Varicose Veins
  • Severe Aneurysm
  • Severe Raynaud’s

If you have any of these conditions, you need to make sure that you consult your doctor before doing BFR training. You might also want to just stick to the usual weight lifting routine.

How to Use Your POWERBANDS® for BFRT

Using POWERBANDS®  for BFRT is very simple, as it is only a matter of wrapping them around the desired body part. 

There are different resistance bands for different body parts, so you need to make sure that you are getting the right one. In general, you should wrap the band around the area where you want to get the BFR. 

You can then use two dumbbells to keep the band in place as you exercise. You might also want to wrap the band around the handle or grip of the dumbbell, which you can use to make sure that the band doesn’t move around.

Studies have shown that you can get benefits from BFR training even if you do not use weights. In other words, you do not need to use weights to get the same muscle gains. Of course, you can still use weights to get faster results.


There is already some research on blood flow restriction training, and there are many success stories. As with any form of training, there are some risks involved. BFR training is not for everybody, and you should always make sure that you listen to your doctor.
