Making Gains whilst in Pain - Occlusion Training
Occlusion or Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) training has gained a lot of attention in the last couple of years, and with good reason. It's showing increasing support within the evidence base to provide a sufficient stimulus for muscle strength and hypertrophy, as well as increasing aerobic fitness (VO2 max), with much lower loads than traditionally used.
Working with as little as 20-30% of your 1RM, with occlusion applied to either the top of the arm or thigh, will increase the hypoxic stress to anything exercised below, or infact around the occlusion. Recently, there has been evidence suggesting the pectorals are responsive to BFR, where previously it was used for the extremities.
If you're post-op, in a lot of pain that restricts moderate to heavy loading, or you need something that doesn't have a huge training stress on your body, BFR is worth trying. Wrap the proximal arm or thigh to what you deem a 6-7/10 tightness (with 10 being total occlusion) without giving yourself any pins & needles.
Take your exercise of choice, and work at 15-30 reps per set, for 3-4 sets with up to 60 seconds rest in between. It's gonna burn, but prepare for an awesome pump, and something that will positively influence your strength and size!
