One thing to remember is that when a muscle is fully contracted blood flow is restricted. You can achieve close to the same effect by using extended static contractions. It works wonders. Use an isolation exercise and do a static contraction with a weight that will cause failure at more than 30s. Longer is preferred as it will create a better effect. The resulting pump afterward is VERY intense!
