Why Changes The Game

Bands create 4 Profound Effects in the body that are not attainable with traditional training methods:

  • Less Load on the Body
  • A Big Nitric Oxide Release
  • Complete and Deeper Slow & Fast Twitch Fiber Recruitment
  • A Big post BFR Growth Hormone Surge

When you combine these 4 effects in the body of an Athlete, you will see significant Performance Changes

We Guarantee Athletes will Experience Results with a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee


Basketball Program

B3 Sciences recommends 3 different workouts during a training week.

Cardio (2/week)
- Wear leg bands.  After 2 weeks, you can also add the arm bands to cardio
- At least 2 days per week, do an aerobic activity wearing the leg bands
- You choose the activity. Walking, Bike, Elliptical Machine, Running
- You can also do court running drills until you hit maximal fatigue
- The goal is to hit at least 8-10 minutes of feeling a deep burn in your leg muscles

Strength Training (2/week)
- Wear Upper or Lower Bands
- Do 1 day Upper Body and 1 day Lower Body strength training

Basketball Movements (2/week)
Wear all 4 Bands
** Prime the Pump: Do a static squat until you feel a light burn in your legs. Then immediately do a static pushup position until you feel a light burn in your arms, chest and shoulders**
Then immediately work Basketball movements:
- Defense Stance / Shuffle Drill
- Rebounding Drill
- 3 Point Shooting

BFR Studies / Peer Reviews

Less Muscle Damage Compared to Heavy Lifting

Peer Review: Does  BFR lead to or even increase the incidence of muscle damage

Reference: Does blood flow restriction result in skeletal muscle damage? A critical review of available evidence

CONCLUSIONS: The available evidence does not support the hypothesis that BFR in combination with low‐intensity exercise increases the incidence of muscle damage. Instead, the available literature suggests that minimal to no muscle damage is occurring with this type of exercise

Increased Aerobic Capacity & Endurance

Study : Cycle Training with BFR in Young Men

ReferenceEffects of Low-Intensity Cycle Training with Restricted Leg Blood Flow on Thigh Muscle Volume and VO2 MAX in Young Men

CONCLUSIONS: Significant improvements in VO2 max (6.4%) and exercise time until exhaustion (15.4%) were observed in the BFR-training group (p < 0.05) but not in the CON-training group (-0.1 and 3. 9%, respectively). The results suggest that low-intensity, short-duration cycling exercise combined with BFR improves both muscle hypertrophy and aerobic capacity concurrently in young men.


Study: 4 weeks of BFR and Cycling

Reference: The Effect of Speed, Power and Strength Training, and a Group Motivational Presentation on Physiological Markers of Athlete Readiness: A Case Study in Professional Rugby. Cook et al (2014)

CONCLUSIONS: Therefore, the increased metabolic and physiologic strains induced by blood flow restriction seem to have been responsible to trigger the adaptive responses linked to a longer time to fatigue after BFR training. Thus BFR Training is shorter, but produces results similar to much longer endurance training

Study: BFR Walk Training Effects on Performance


CONCLUSIONS: Blood flow restriction walk training resulted in significant improvements in VO2 max (p=.034), significant decreases in 1.5 mile run time (p=.024) and significant increases in thigh muscle cross sectional area (p=.016)BFR walk training represents a singular training methodology for improving aerobic capacity, endurance and muscular size at low training volumes and intensities. This may be beneficial for individuals undertaking concurrent strength and endurance training.

Greater Recruitment of Fast Twitch Muscle Fibers

Study:  8 Men Knee Extension

ReferenceBlood Flow Restriction Alters Motor Unit Behavior During Resistance Exercise

CONCLUSIONS: There was a notable shift towards higher values of firing rate and MUAP amplitude post BFR exercise. Taken together, our data indicate that Low Intensity BFR exercise increases the activity of motor units with higher  amplitude. They also indicate that motor units with similar amplitudes become activated at higher firing rates post-LI BFR exercise


Field Application in Athletes Changes Performance

ReferenceOcclusion-Induced Potentiation

CONCLUSIONS: There is an increase of type IIx muscle fiber with the use of BFR training

Athlete Speed Increases with BFR

Study: Low-intensity sprint training with BFR in well trained Sport Students.

Reference: Low-Intensity Sprint Training With Blood Flow Restriction Improves 100-m Dash

CONCLUSIONS: The BFR improved the 100-m dash time significantly more than low-intensity sprint interval training alone


Study: 15 Male College Track & Field Athletes

Reference: Eight days KAATSU-resistance training improved sprint performance in collegiate male track and field athletes

CONCLUSIONS: Overall 30-m dash times improved in the BFR-training group, with significant improvements occurring during the initial acceleration phase
