BFR Bands Releases New PRO-X Bands to Help You Gain Muscle Without Heavy Weight Lifting

BFR Bands releases the all-new PRO-X BFR Bands to make it easier than ever to gain muscle and strength while lifting very light weight or even just bodyweight.

San Diego, United States - February 14, 2018 /MarketersMedia/ —

San Diego, CA: With the release of the PRO-X, BFR Bands make an important new step in the evolution of blood flow restriction training. This researched-backed technique allows a user to gain muscle and strength while lifting lighter weights, and BFR’s PRO-X design is fitted with a pull-totighten buckle that makes fastening and release easy and smooth. In addition to the redesigned buckle, the PRO-X features several other patents-pending including a proprietary marking system to track pressure to ensure symmetry and precision when lifting.

Developed by Dr. Yoshiaki Sato in the 1970s, blood flow restriction training is a technique that optimizes lifting by gently constricting the blood vessels near the targeted muscles. After years of research, including much trial and error, Sato developed what he called Kaatsu, a method to safely modify blood flow during isometric exercises.

BFR Bands was launched by exercise science and neuroscience expert Kusha Karvandi after he researched the applied neuroscience behind Dr. Sato’s methods. He found that he could enhance the efficacy of his clients’ lifting by using bands that slow venous blood flow out of the limbs. “It tricks the brain,” he says, “into thinking you’re lifting heavy weight, when you’re not.”

The pooling of the blood by the constriction causes cell swelling which has an anabolic effect. It also reduces the oxygen in the muscles, quickly fatiguing the slow twitch muscles. This tells the brain to activate the fast twitch muscles, which are usually only active during high intensity workouts. This “biohack” causes the brain to naturally release growth hormone to repair the damaged cells, and so builds muscle.

One customer says that before he bought the BFR Bands, he bought a pressure cuff band for hundreds of dollars. He was dismayed that they were “really involved compared to BFR Bands,” and were nearly ten times as expensive as the PRO-X. He also added, “The BFR Bands are, in my opinion, the best value for the money this side of the $2,000 Kaatsu machines.”

The ease of fastening and removal makes the PRO-X bands superior to many of the much more expensive options, with far less hassle. The method is ideal for anyone looking to gain muscle size and strength without the stress on joints or body from lifting heavier weights, and has already been used to support injured athletes.

The Latest: Crowds low at Olympic hockey playoff games

Feb 24, 2018

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea — The Latest on the Pyeongchang Olympics (all times local): 2:30 p.m. Thinking the Olympic hockey arenas look empty? You're not alone. International Ice Hockey Federation president Rene Fasel says he's disappointed with the crowds at some playoff games but acknowledges South Korea is not a hockey country. He says, "I think the pricing was also relatively high for people." Tickets for the bronze and gold medal games run about $140 to $278 U.S. on the Pyeongchang Games website. At the first Olympics without NHL players since 1994, there have been whole sectors of empty seats at...

Some things aren't better left unsaid at the Olympics

Feb 24, 2018

NEW YORK — Highlights from media coverage of the Pyeongchang Olympics: LEFT UNSAID: NBC aired a touching tribute to the late American bobsledder Steve Holcomb, and the impact he had on his sport's tight-knit community. The failure to mention how an Olympic athlete died at only 37 years old (he was found last May in Lake Placid, N.Y., with alcohol and sleeping pills in his system) was a distraction, however. Lester Holt did reveal that in a "Nightly News" feature on Holcomb earlier Friday, but you can't assume audience overlap. Similarly, the coverage of American speedskater Shani Davis' seventh-place finish...

Tough bobsled season for the US men coming to an end

Feb 24, 2018

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea — The last official day of bobsled season is Sunday, and the American men probably can't wait for the finale. So far in these Pyeongchang Olympics, U.S. bobsled coach Brian Shimer was bedridden by illness, Codie Bascue partially tore his left calf muscle, Justin Olsen needed emergency surgery to remove his appendix and Nick Cunningham saw whatever medal hopes he had in the two-man race end about five seconds from the starting line. That's not even a complete list of the problems. "The bobsled Gods are upset at us for something," Cunningham said. That's about the only...

Butler hurt as Rockets beat Wolves for 11th straight win

Feb 24, 2018

HOUSTON — James Harden wrapped up another 30-point night and another Rockets victory, then made his way to Minnesota's training room. Even the Timberwolves' opponents were concerned about Jimmy Butler. Harden scored 31 points and Houston won its 11th straight game with a 120-102 victory Friday night over the Timberwolves, who lost Butler to an apparent right knee injury. Butler left the game late in the third quarter. After grabbing a rebound late in the third quarter, the All-Star pivoted and planted hard on his right foot before collapsing and grabbing his right knee. He was on the floor for...
