the pump in general doesnt but affter occlussion the pump is due to full blood flow being restored and nutrients being pulled into the muscle at a faster rate, It technically allows you to build muscle without destroying it first

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!

Yeah, I do statics for chest for the occlusion effect...since it is impossible to use wraps for that muscle. But you have to do heavy statics - above 65% 1 RM.

yeah that sounds about right. Usually a weight that I can handle for about 10-12 reps is one I can do a 50-60s static contraction with.

i saw an abstract at ACSM last year where they occluded the arms to hypertrophy the chest. the idea was...the triceps would fatigue very quickly calling on a recruitment of more chest
