The Pump

The future is now. If you haven’t been taking advantage of the benefits of BFR (blood flow restriction) training you’re missing out on the sickest pump of your life, bro. All kidding aside, Nick Colosi is joining us from Smart Tools [@smarttoolsusa] to talk about the science behind occlusion training and therapy. But as Nick notes, it’s no spa treatment. If you’ve experienced BFR you know that the pressure necessary to occlude an artery can be a skosh uncomfortable. No different than getting your blood pressure test. Nick says using the Smart Cuffs by Smart Tools could be just what you need to blunt DOMS and increase performance.

This is an ad. Please consider our shameless self promotion.

Still waiting for your Smart Cuffs to arrive? Easy there, cowboy. Many of the parts used in the most effective BFR tool on the market are shared with ventilators. As in COVID…ever heard? If for some reason you haven’t purchased your own Smart Cuffs or haven’t been getting down with BFR training at all, give this episode a listen. Discover the methodology behind occlusion training and what it can do for your performance AND your recovery. Magic? No, bro. It’s science.
