SRT - Sports Rehab Tourniquet
We have created a total BFR training system that includes cuffs of different lengths. Now you can perform a wider array of exercises with the freedom of a detachable pump.
Scroll down for more information about Blood Flow Restriction and important information regarding how to select and use the SRT correctly.
Setting your pressure
Training at the correct pressure will ensure that you maximise your training results and it also ensures that you are training safely. Training at a range between 50-80% of limb occlusion pressure (LOP) is most effective. Limb circumference and blood pressure are two important factors to calculate LOP and therefore BFR training pressure. I have included a easy and effective method to do this.
Follow these instructions:
Individualised pressure calculation:
1. Go to my resources page and download the easy to use spreadsheet pressure calculator.
2. Measure limb circumference and blood pressure as outlined in the instructions. Use this to put into the formula to calculate your individualised BFR training pressure.
3. Remember that these pressures are a guide and a systematic gradual increase to this pressure may be required if the pressure is deemed too high initially.
As a guide and cross-reference, these are approximate pressures that you may expect to find relevant to lower body limb circumference:
45-50cm = 100mmHg
51-55cm = 130mmHg
56-59cm = 150 - 160mmHg
60cm = 160-170mmHg
