Static Holds in Training

More dietary intervention for healthy cardiovascular blood vessels! Fruits & vegetables increase N.O.

Since statics impede blood flow during their employment, this will greatly reduce nitric oxide levels in the blood flow impeded areas. This is not ideal . Regular speed employing several repetitions should provide much more nitric oxide leading to substantial muscular pumping. This along with substantial cardiovascular training seem logical from a cardiovascular conditioning perspective.

Doesn’t BFR training restrict NO flow also? Why would BFR training be beneficial & statics be detrimental?

Good question!

I suspect both would not be ideal from a cardiovascular conditioning perspective!
