BFR Training for Immune Health with

How the Immune System Responds to Exercise and Why BFR Training is Key

Vigorous Exercise Benefits your Immune Health

Study -Vigorous Exercise


  • The Immune System is very responsive to exercise.
  • Acute exercise (Vigorous) is now viewed as an important immune system adjuvant.
  • Regarding Moderate Exercise . . .  when repeated on a regular basis, confers multiple health benefits including decreased illness incidence

The Problem: Most People can't or won't do Vigorous Exercise

The Solution: Light Exercise with B3 Bands simulates Vigorous Exercise in your Body!

As Safe as Light Exercise

Exercise: Walking


  • These findings suggest that at-risk populations can perform BFR without fear of overt cardiovascular risk.

Safety Study Yoga

Exercise: Yoga


  • We found that there were no further elevations in arterial blood pressure and myocardial oxygen demand when / B  Strong Bands were added to yoga practices.
  • Our findings indicate that / B Strong Bands can be applied to yoga while avoiding unfavorable hemodynamic responses and preserving the intended effects on muscle hypertrophy.

BFR Studies / Peer Reviews

Immune Cells Activation From BFR

Peer Review : The Role of Inflammation and Immune Cells in Blood Flow Restriction Training Adaptation

Reference: Frontiers in Physiology


  • Blood Flow Restriction with low-intensity training creates a robust metabolic stress (you feel the Burn)
  • Creates a greater endocrine (HGH) response
  • Recruitment of White Blood Cells including monocytes, macrophages and T cells.

Growth Hormone Release

Study : 11 Males - Large Increase in HGH

ReferenceHemodynamic and hormonal responses to a short-term low-intensity resistance exercise with the reduction of muscle blood flow.

CONCLUSIONS: Growth Hormone increased (GH 0.11+/-0.03 to 8.6+/-1.1 ng/ml). These results suggest that short term low intensity resistance exercise with BFR significantly stimulates the exercise-induced GH.


Study : Middle Aged Women

Reference: Effect of a low-intensity resistance exercise program with blood flow restriction on growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor-1 levels in middle-aged women

CONCLUSIONS: A significant elevated GH level was observed in the BFR groups when compared with the control group.


Study : 7 Healthy Older Men (70 yo)

Reference: Circulating hormone and cytokine response to low-load resistance training with blood flow restriction in older men.

CONCLUSIONS: GH increased from rest to 30-min post-exercise and was greater during BFR than without. In conclusion, a single bout of BFR increases the circulating concentrations of GH in older men and may explain the skeletal muscle and peripheral vascular adaptations observed following training with BFR.
