JHR May 2009 - Blood Occlusion Training
 
We have published numerous articles here which have literally revolutionized the way that bodybuilders view optimal nutrition, training, and supplementation.

I am proud to say...this will be another classic. I can honestly say the principles discussed in this article have completely changed the way that I train.

So here it is: how to apply blood occlusion training to your program, brought to you by our very own, Jeremy Loenneke (AKA willwork4andro).

Enjoy!

Great read as always, this is something I'm definitely going to implement into my training. One question that has crossed my mind is DOMS after occlussion training, how does it compare to training regularly?

i think DOMS is probably a little more after occlusion than regular training...at least that's been my experience

I've occluded around my arms for delts and it works great. I thought I was occluding my delts; but maybe I was just occluding my arms and using my delts more? Have to try this for chest and back...

Studies so far don't show a significant increase in muscle damage from occlusion training. Which is a huge advantage. FYI DOMS is one of the measures of muscle damage.

Nice read, that is awesome that you have an article in JHR!

If one wanted to try without wraps, do you think it would be possible to perform leg extensions while consciously flexing more than normal to provide some occlusion. And between sets, you would keep the quad flexed to prevent normal blood flow? Just curious. I am intrigued by the idea of getting a better horomonal release to assist with upper body hypertrophy.

Sure Jer will add but some comments...

Occlusion does not occur with static contraction unless you are at 60% + max. So you could hold something statically, at 60% max between sets. Also, you could try stretching between sets. I do this a lot and it is really similar to the occlusion feeling, and I can barely lift anything.

i've honestly never thought of DOMS as being a marker for muscle damage...as Gabe said, there have been no increases in known markers for muscle damage.
