1. B Strong BFR Training System – Blood Flow Restriction Bands Training System
Improve your overall health and fitness with the B Strong Training System.

Its arm and leg bands are made of extremely durable industrial-grade materials used in marine applications, so they can be worn during almost any type of exercise or sports, whether that’s simply a workout session at the gym or even a swimming session. This blood flow training system can be used by people of all ages, making it the perfect workout accessory for anyone. It also comes together with a hand pump for tightening its arm and leg bands.
