About Hytro:

Hytro’s patented TechWear packages the remarkable benefits of BFR in safe and easy-to-use sportswear. Extensively tested by experts, Hytro is ideal for active or passive work, allowing athletes to power up their training sessions and boost their recovery. Developed by scientists, Hytro TechWear is made from high quality fabrics chosen for comfort, performance and longevity. It features an in-built strap, carefully designed and positioned to deploy within seconds and deliver a safe workout, making BFR more accessible than ever before.

About BFR Training:

To perform BFR training, a strap is applied to the upper arms or legs and tightened. This allows oxygenated blood to flow into the limbs while limiting the return bloodflow. This increases muscle fibre activation and up-regulates muscle-building hormones, leading to rapid increases in muscle size and strength. Countless studies have found just two weeks of BFR training is enough to significantly increase muscle size, strength and power.

There is also significant scientific data to support the effectiveness of passive recovery with BFR. Using passive BFR will accelerate recovery, meaning athletes can feel freshed after even the toughest of sessions. Passive BFR training can be done anytime, anywhere. By simply strapping in with your Hytro BFR TechWear, you put into motion a whole series of physiological changes in your body without the need for movement.
