Occlusion training has its roots in rehab and it can effectively aid the healing of an injured muscle. Check out the article on ABC here before proceeding:

Use wide knee wraps. You can occlude your quads/hams by wrapping up thight, calve by wrapping just above or below the knee. Delts/biceps/triceps/forearms are pretty easy to wrap you made need a partner to help you. There isn't really any way to occlude your chest or back though.
