``BLOOD FLOW RESTRICTION IS A GAME CHANGER``
Studies have found that lifting as low as 20% of maximum strength can produce increases in muscle size and strength similar to that of traditional resistance exercise which uses closer to 70% of an individual’s maximum strength.
``NEW METHOD MAY BENEFIT ATHLETES``
“That has caught the attention of the NFL. Dr. Matthew Matava, head team physician for the St. Louis Rams and president of the NFL Team Physicians Society, said he is encouraged by BAMC’s early results and believes BFR training could have practical application for players recovering from injury or surgery.
“The most beneficial aspect of this technique,” said Matava, “may be the ability to improve muscle strength while avoiding the stress of high-resistance exercise in the early phases of rehabilitation.”

“I think it’s the most revolutionary training methodology I’ve ever seen” — Six-time Olympic medalist Bode Miller
``GET BIGGER LIFTING LIGHTER``
“The main benefit of occlusion training is that it actually allows the body to respond to low level intensity exercise – best used for fat loss – in the same way it does to moderate intensity exercise best used for muscle gain. This means you are able to get the same muscle building benefits while lifting lighter weight as you would by lifting heavier weight.”
