Interested in B Strong Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) Guided Training?
You have come to the right place. Check out the information below to learn about the life-changing impact these fitness programs are having and how to sign up today.
How does B Strong BFR work?
B Strong has specifically engineered a narrow elastic band that is placed around the arms and/or legs. These bands are inflated with a hand pump to a specific pressure which temporarily changes the way blood exits the limb. When exercising with B Strong it makes relatively easy exercise seem challenging as the brain things the muscle is working harder than it actually is.

What is myositis and why is B Strong BFR a good fit to help improve fitness?
Myositis means inflammation of the muscles and these conditions are associated with muscle weakness. B Strong BFR allows exercise to be conducted anywhere using light loads and for a short period of time, but can produce the effects of a more strenuous training session. These effects include increasing muscle strength and size and getting a hormonal response from the exercise in which the entire body will benefit. Since light loads are used it minimizes the stress on the body allowing it to recover quickly following exercise to help in building strength and function.

How much does the program cost?

Enrollment into guided training that includes everything listed above is $99.99/month and allows participants to be involved on a month-to-month basis. Any additional time with your coach is billed at a rate of $120/hour.
Is BFR safe?
Approximately 300,000 sessions of this type of training are completed daily in Japan. The idea was first conceived in the 1960’s and was implemented and developed into the 1970’s, so it has been around for a while. The Japanese have published safety survey’s in 2005 and 2016, with limited adverse effects when applying with correct equipment and guidance. B Strong has developed a system with a unique design to allow the bands to apply pressure to the tissue without occluding arterial flow or creating a tourniquet. Many adverse effects that occur come from training under full occlusion. With B Strong, the air pump can reach its maximum capacity while still allowing blood flow into the limb.
Has BFR been studied in those who have myositis?
Yes. There has been a case report published on a 74 year old male with IBM, a randomized control trial on several patients with IBM, and another study on its impact on those with polymyositis and dermatomyositis. The most recent published study looked at the immune system/inflammation and determined inflammatory response wasn’t intensified with BFR training. While these studies aren’t overly numerous and significantly robust in nature, the safety and effectiveness of BFR in these small groups are encouraging and showing positive outcomes. B Strong Guided Training set up as a fitness based program that isn’t designed for treatment of a specific condition, but future clinical trials are being pursued for implications with specific disease states.
