i wrap the very top of my leg with leg wraps to restrict bloodflow to the muscle...for calves i wrap them around my knees....i basically exercise for 2 minutes, then rest for 1 minute, until i reach 20 minutes...it's basically turning low-intensity exercise that would normally train Type 1 fibers into a high intensity exercise, largely without an increase in effort. occlusion training is a restriction of blooflow which has been shown to cause very favorable hypertrophic adaptations...just to name a few

Higher GH than with high resistance training
increased motor unit firing at very low intensites
decreased myostatin gene expression
increased Heat Shock Proteins
Increased NOS-1

all attributable to a metabolic accumulation

what a workout today was...i met one of my goals of curing 180 for 5 so that's definitely a plus...i'll be honest with you, i'm pretty **** excited about heading back up to Champaign Friday morning...i'm heading up there to hang out with the man himself, Chris Fahs, and to watch him take the stage...this guy is a freak and also one of the nicest most humble people you'll ever meet...makes for a good combination....

ez bar curls-180 for 5 (video below)
bilateral db hammer curls-45's for 12
deathsquats on hacksquat-425 for 5
lying leg curls-230 for 5/220 for 8
calves

trying to get it done every single day...i know one person in particular on bb.com, that absolutely thought my form was horrible, but i was pleased with my form, so i guess it's whatever...it really depends on whose in the video, if it's a big name guy, then it's the greatest thing they've ever seen, but if it's me, it's just a hip curl...lol...was my form ideal on the last 2, NO...but i went in there to get 5 reps and i got my 5 reps.




Dark days lead to darker nights
Frozen, out of time.
It dies for blessed ego, the once mighty laid low.
Frost on the breath of life
Empty of warmth or light
Full of nothing but deprivation
You taught hate, I'll teach you fear
Open the eyes, kill despair
You cannot squeeze the life from me
Son of a *****, I'm going to break you.


-LAMB OF GOD-

For real? Holy crap. I remember just reading a few weeks ago about occlusion with lifting and vascularity... didn't know it could be applied to cardio. That's crazy. So would you compare the metabolic effect of this type of training to that of HIIT-- you know, the "metabolism revving" effect?

i really don't know the answer to this...i never really thought about that aspect...i doubt it is comparable to HIIT cardio as it is with high intensity resistance training. i guess in theory it would definitely be better than true low intensity cardio...
