BFR is a technique that is being used successfully with elite athletes and soldiers around the country. It is the application of a tourniquet that monitors blood flow in the extremity while an individual works out. By working out in short bursts with the tourniquet system on to monitor blood flow the individual is able to rapidly progress to an anaerobic level which results in the body releasing a variety of metabolites that add in favorable adaptive changes to the tissue.
