Blood Flow Restriction/Occlusion Training/Kaatsu Training
 
I am currently going on week 4 of incorporating this type of approach on my hyper days and I really enjoy it, wondering if others have played around with it much or how they approach it.

I've used it with cardio and leg extensions; extremely painful, but nothing comes easy.

I run into a high pain level as well while doing leg ext but the pain level with bicep curls is excruciating. I asked Jeremy Loenneke and I need to reassess how tight I am going with the wraps.

I haven't attempted upper body yet, but I wouldn't think smaller muscle groups would be more painful than the thighs. I'll have to attempt upper body soon and let you know how it goes.

I was going too tight and wasn't doing the approach that Jeremy provided but rather applying it to my hyper chest and arm day via PHAT routine. I KNOW I was going too tight because it felt like blood vessels were about to pop in my forearms, I usually worked through it but my arms were purple after each set and I would unwrap so now I am going to wrap a little more loosely and focus on moderate restriction vs. almost completely restricting.

I tried it once on bicep curls, positively dreadful.

Squats as well twice, ROM becomes very restricted.

I've found it works best on occluded walks and leg extensions or leg curls.

I agree with bicep curls . . . . I want to work through it though. :)

I have never tried it while walking or doing any cardio . . . I use powerlifting knee wraps . . . like 30" ones so I look like a clown already doing the occlusion but the to add to the mess I have about 15inches of extra wrap hanging around hah.

Well, you can tuck in the extra.

What are your prepping for on October 22nd?

going to give a whirl at a BBing competition, there is one in mid may that I was thinking about competing in back in November but once the new semester started I wouldn't be able to handle all the pressures and trying to do my best in both school and contest prep.

Good luck, I am currently prepping for a show April 21st.
