Yoga Study

Wide Rigid Cuffs vs Narrow Elastic Bands

Peer Review - 14 Medical Experts

Summary of Conclusions:

- Increased strength and hypertrophy in young and older populations

- BFR-RE results in greater post-exercise hypotension than HL-RE (high load resistance exercise)

- The totality of the literature reveals minimal adverse events pertaining to VTE and clinically reported events have not been reported"

- Resistance training has demonstrated the ability to up-regulate the fibrinolytic pathway and has been demonstrated after just one exercise session and in healthy young participants and aged patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). It would appear that BFR-RE stimulates the fibrinolytic system
