Re: Blood Flow Restriction during Low-Intensity Resistance Exercise Increases S6K1 Phosphorylation and Muscle Protein Synthesis.

Whats really interesting to me, is that a lot of studies on protein synthesis attribute the increase in protein synthesis to enhanced blood flow (and particularly extracellular amino acid delivery). And off course, bodybuilders have always been huge on training to the "pump."

After doing this a few times, like martin stated, I noticed the pump is larger. It appears that blood just gets trapped their and can't escape. So its more like a continual pump, actually supporting the bodybuilding notion of inducing big pumps for growth.
Layne Norton said he wrapped two size "small" weight belts around his legs for thighs. I used an LP support wrap. I also used a rope from my robe. I can't imagine using rubber bands. That would kill the skin!
