TERMS TO KNOW

These are common terms associated with BFR Training.

Occlusion

Occlusion is a complete or partial blockage of a blood vessel. 60-80% of limb occlusion pressure in the lower extremity and 40-50% of limb of occlusion pressure in the upper extremity is recommended for BFRT.

One-rep max

A one-rep max refers to the maximum amount of weight you can lift for one repetition of a given exercise. It is used as a marker of overall strength and power in the exercise.

Type 2b muscle fibers

Type 2B muscle fibers are your “fast-twitch" muscle fibers. They are quicker to fatigue but can produce stronger and faster bursts of power. These are the primary muscles you will want to work to see gains in size and strength.

IGF-1

Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1) is a hormone that manages the effects of growth hormone (GH) in your body. Together, IGF-1 and GH promote normal growth of bones and tissues.

VO2MAX

VO2 max, or maximal oxygen consumption, refers to the maximum amount of oxygen that an individual can utilize during intense or maximal exercise.

Muscle Hypertrophy

When blood is restricted in your muscles, they get bigger. This swelling of the muscles is called hypertrophy. Hypertrophy kickstarts a series of processes that leads to muscle growth and strengthening. 

Nitric oxide

Nitric oxide is a compound in the body that causes blood vessels to widen and stimulates the release of certain hormones, such as insulin and human growth hormone.
