BFR Bands® - "Elite" BFR Bands (Pair) - Occlusion Bands Designed For BFR Training

Quick Overview

Have you already tried BFR (blood flow restriction) training? Are you looking for a more comfortable band to use during your workouts? The BFR ”ELITE 2.0” bands might be just what you want. These are furnished with a super comfortable elastic nylon strap and a quick-release cam buckle, making it very easy to strap up and release. They come in a pair, allowing you to symmetrically train both arms or legs at the same time, and also feature a brand new and smart marking system for maximised precision and symmetry when working out while wearing them. The "Elite 2.0 BFR Bands" are thicker, longer (40" rather than 30") and thus allow for more rigid use.

    BFR Bands – ”ELITE 2.0 BFR Bands"

     

    Blood flow restriction (BFR) basically means that you wrap an elastic band around the upper part of one or more specific body parts to restrict the flow of blood to that or those muscles you are training. When performing blood flow restriction or ”occlusion” training in the correct manner, the muscle will still have the ability to receive blood flow arterially but the veins are occluded, rendering the blood partially restricted from leaving the active muscle(s).

     

     

    When the scenario is as such, it will lead to a certain ”swelling” effect on the muscle; something that has to do with the swelling of cells, which is one of the things happening inside of the muscles when they are stimulated by physical exercise. Also, the restriction of blood flow also causes a build-up of metabolites as lactic acid, which has been shown to have a directly stimulation effect on the growth of muscle tissue. The direct fatigue that the muscles are exposed to, forces the nervous system to recruit the fast-twitch muscle fibers or ”type-II muscle fibers”, which are the ones that have the fastest contraction speed and thus those with the greatest potential for growth.

     

    Sitting at a width of 1.5 inches, the BFR ”ELITE 2.0” are the most comfortable bands to use while performing blood flow restriction training that are on the market today. They are constructed of a the most comfortable material and have very good elastic abilities. They are also a bit thicker than the other BFR bands, and the length measures 40 inches.

     

    Because of their special marking system, they allow for users to have super accurate precision and symmetry when using them. They work very well for the more experienced user and are also the absolute perfect solution for those who simply seek the most comfortable BFR bands available today.

    Frequently asked questions (FAQ):

     

    ”How do I know if I have tightened the bands too much on one or more of my body parts?”

     

    A general cue for knowing if you have tightened the bands too much is to determine if you feel numbness or a tingling sensation. If this is the case, you will have to loosen up your bands. Another easy way to check for excessive tightness, is to press your thumb against your palm (if you have the bands placed on your upper body) or on the inside of your knee (if you have the band placed on your lower body), and see how long it takes for the blood to return. This should take between 2-3 seconds if you have tightened the bands sufficiently. If you notice that it takes longer than that, if it takes longer than that, the bands need to be tightened up. This is important to check for consistently throughout your workout, but as the workout progresses and your muscle ”pump” increases, the bands will also feel tighter.

     

    ”How tight should the bands precisely ”feel” when I am working out while wearing them?”

     

    In all actuality, the bands should not feel as tight as you might think they should. The research that has been done on blood flow restriction training says that in order for you to obtain the best results, the bands should be tightened to a level of 5-7 on a scale of perceived tightness; 10 being the absolute tightest. If you experience that the bands do not feel tight enough initially, then you might need to increase your training volume, i.e. 30-50 repetitions, 3-10 sets. og also decrease your rest times in between sets, i.e. 20-30 seconds of rest. Furthermore, some individuals will find that the ”PRO” or ”ELITE” bands fit them and also feel better to them, while others might find that the ”CLASSIC” model, which is more rigid, is the most appropriate version for them and their specific needs. Please also see the last question for a distinction between all 3 models.

     

    ”Is it safe for me to be training using the blood flow restriction bands?”

     

    Yes. There are numerous studies that support the fact that BFR training is both safe and also very effective. One study even concluded that BFR training serves as being more safe than conventional weight training, which is performed using more heavy weights. Since BFR training is performed using lighter weights (~20% of your one rep max), it will put less stress on the body as well as the nervous system. Additionally, it is worth mentioning that you are already performing BFR training when doing regular weight training since the occlusion happens internally.

     

    ”Who will benefit the most from doing BFR training?”

     

    BFR training can be serve as being very effective for those who seek to gain lean muscle tissue without lifting heavy weights. This could in example be women, who do not have the preference of lifting heavy weights all of the time, men who are in need of a ”deload” week (a light week of training, serving as a form of active recovery), those who are recovering from one or more injuries, and those who simply seek rapid gains in muscle size. Since training with restricted blood flow to the muscles create a bolus of blood and important nutrients which flood to the muscles and joints, it has been theorized that it also serves as a contribution to the strengthening of tissue such as ligaments and tendons. Stronger and more powerful ligaments and tendons are essential for injury prevention and also helps in lowering the brain’s ”threat levels, ultimately making your brain feel more comfortable to increase the strength contractile capabilities of your muscles.

     

    ”How often should I be doing BFR training?”

     

    The general recommendation for the frequency of blood flow restriction training is 4-5 days per week, but if you wish to gain muscle hypertropy more rapidly, the most effective way of going about BFR training will be to do it on a daily basis – at least during the first 2-3 weeks. BFR training can also very well be integreated into a current training routine, i.e. on rest days, as part of an active recovery week or even at the end of every workout. The bands can in fact also be work when doing light cardiovascular training of 30 minutes on a daily basis.

     

    ”Where should I place the bands on my body?”

     

    The BFR bands can be placed on the upper part of the arms if you are training the upper body, or the upper part of the legs if you are training the lower body. The bands do not need to directly restrict bloodflow to an area to provide the benefits. For example, you will still experience the benefits of the BFR training for muscle groups such as the chest and back when the bands are placed on the arms, even though these areas are not directly occluded.

     

    ”How many sets and repetitions should I be doing in my workouts?”

     

    This is entirely dependent on the context of your individual goals, but in general, the best results will be obtained if you peform 4-6 exercises for 3-10 sets each and 20-50 repetitions each. Also, the weights that are being used during workouts should be very low; no more than 20% of your one repetition max number, and the rest periods should be kept very short as well; no more than 20-30 seconds. You are more than welcome to contact us at anytime if you have further questions.

     

    ”What are the differences between the ”CLASSIC” model, the ”ELITE” model and the ”PRO” model?”

     

    The ”ELITE” bands: At a width of 1 ½ inches and constructed of a super comfortable and elastic material, these are very good for the more advanced BFR user, and also for those with bodytypes that simply require that they have something more comfortable. The ”ELITE” model is thicher, longer (40 inches long) and include a new marking system, which makes for very accurate precision and symmetry.

     

    WARNINGS:

     

    Do not uset this product outside of the care of a medical physician. All use of this products is at the own risk of the user and individuals who use the product should be aware of the fact that physcial training, with or without any form of resistance, involves a risk of potential injury. It is generally not recommended that the BFR bands are used for any lift involving a load that exceeds 20% of the user’s one rep maximum. I.e. if your 1 rep max  in a specific lift or exercise is 100 lbs, it is not recommended that you use the BFR bands for that specific lift or exercise with a load that exceeds 20 lbs.

    1. Crazy PUMP!!! review by Klaus Myren Riis on 14/02/2017
      Value

      Even bigger and more painful pumps with the BFR Bands, meaning a bigger stimulation of muscle fibers and metabolic stress taking place inside your muscles = More muscle growth - LOVE THEM :D
