BFR Band (pair)
1RM Blood Flow Restriction Band
Blood flow restriction (BFR) training involves cutting off venous blood flow out of a limb, but still allowing arterial blood flow into a limb, resulting in the best pump of your life.
Because of the massive pump you get from BFR training, people assume it’s the bee’s knees for hypertrophy. However, thus far, it doesn’t seem to cause any more growth than conventional, heavy training.
The biggest benefit of BFR training actually seems to be notable increases in strength when it’s added to heavy training. It causes a high degree of muscle activation (rivaling heavy lifting) and causes virtually no muscle damage, making it essentially “free” volume to help you get stronger without compromising recovery.
There are a few more cool benefits, including enhancing recovery from training, and reducing atrophy when you’re injured.
Best Exercises for BFR training:
- Dumbbell Curls
- Cable Curls
- Rope Push down
- Leg extension
- Seated Leg Curls
How to Use:
On a level of 1 to 10 the bands tightness should be 7. If your hands are getting numb after 30-40 secs of wearing the BFR band then your band is too tight.

⚠️The band should just be tight enough to restrict blood flow in the veins.
this thing is GREAT and has helped in building the size of my arm and are super afordable
Thank you for this amazing product at such an affordable price,
You guys literally delivered it within 2 days of ordering !
The bands are perfect and do what it is meant to do , very easy to clamp/de-clamp and do not have that annoying velcro that other BFR bands have.
The product has great quality and finish although this is the cheapest BFR band in the market. It is great for throwing in into your arm and leg sessions , especially for stubborn calf muscles(tie it just below the knee).
I also loved the personal touch(hand written letter) by Yash along with the order.
I wish the 1RM team great success ! I am a happy customer.
