BFR Cuffs: Your New Gym Partner
Think Blood Flow Restriction training is just the latest flash in the pan fitness trend? Think again. Professional athletes have been in on the secret of BFR training for a while. But, until now, the concept hadn’t taken off in the wider consumer fitness product market…
Simply put, the only products previously available to implement BFR training were completely non-user friendly.
Previously the choices for BFR were bulky, wired and expensive products that required a health practitioner to operate, or the choice of a manual strap which meant a heap of guesswork for the user to determine how much pressure should be applied and how much time should be spent occluded during a workout.
And all of this effort came with no guarantee that what you were doing would actually work.
That was then; this is now: The BFR Cuffs by SAGA have effortlessly solved these problems.

What happens when you strap on The BFR Cuffs?
You build muscle: Adding BFR to your strength conditioning program will help you accelerate the activation of your type II muscle fibres – these are the ones responsible for increasing muscle size.
You improve muscle strength: BFR training promotes the release of muscle protein synthesis and human growth hormones, which helps your muscles not only get bigger, but also to get stronger.
You improve your overall fitness: Using BFR training can improve your aerobic capacity, as it forces you to train a maximum loads – even without performing high intensity interval training.
Accelerate your wellness destiny: Looking and performing at your peak level begins with feeling confident and in control in your strength training strategy. The addition of BFR may help you see results from as little as 2 weeks.
BFR is a BFD
If you’re new to the concept of BFR training (which stands for blood flow restriction), it involves low-intensity exercise while wearing constrictive bands designed to reduce the amount of oxygen supplied to the muscles.
Let’s address the elephant in the weight room: how does blood flow restriction safely and effectively help build muscle?
At first glance, the idea of depriving your muscles of oxygen seems counterproductive. However, restricting the right amount of blood flow can actually provide a huge boost to your workout. By placing a tourniquet around your limb during exercise, you reduce the blood flow to the working muscle. This reduced oxygen flow causes the working muscle to fatigue, and thus, work harder. Blood Flow Restriction can increase muscle size and strength faster than traditional resistance training. Results can become apparent in as little as 2-3 weeks.
