Increase your deadlift with BFR

As far as total body lifts go, there is nothing quite like the deadlift. One of the quintessential compound lifts, the deadlift can help you build unparalleled mass while strengthening all the major muscle groups.  

Yet closing the gap to a new PB, or attempting to get over a strength plateau, can be an extremely frustrating experience. Out of the various methods and protocols you can implement, adding blood flow restriction to your deadlift program is one method guaranteed to help accelerate strength and muscle gains, so that you’ll be able to quickly chase down that elusive PB.

Six-weeks to a stronger deadlift

Our six-week deadlift program incorporates BFR into your accessory lifts. The goal here is to help you strengthen your lift while using BFR and lighter loads so that you don’t experience the physiological fatigue associated with heavy loads.

Put simply, by adding BFR you can still achieve the stimulus required to improve strength – with a shorter recovery time or less risk of injury or overtraining.

This means you can have shorter turn arounds between training and will feel fresh when the time comes to test your new PB.
