    Default Surefire method for strength gains at 1/4 of your normal weight load?

    What if there was a safe, surefire method to jack your growth hormone and get way stronger, way faster, in way less time? Like, in less than 20 minutes, at ¼ of your normal weight-load?

    And what if you could achieve these unprecedented strength gains without feeling sore the next day and with no wear and tear to your joints?

    And what if this method will work as well for the elderly and injured as it will work for the most elite of athletes?

    And what if you don’t check this method out right now—and you miss out on what is arguably the most effective natural strength gain breakthrough of the last 100 years?

    In less than 2 minutes, you can get the goods on this ultimate game-changer of a method—and be on your way to amazing gains, whatever your age or current condition.

    I have been using this method myself—and have been beyond blown away by my newfound strength gains. Which is why I am personally urging you to check this out now.

    This is interesting. But, I have never read of this method before - and believe me I surf the internet in search of strength and conditioning methods quite a bit. Is this "new"? My experience has always been that if something sounds too good to be true - it ain't. Would like input on this - some first hand accounts if possible...Dennis

    Google Kaatsu Training or occlusion training. It's been around for a while in martial arts and is used in rehabilitation. I read somewhere that the New England Patriots use it because it builds strength and size without the strains, sprains, and injuries because you are only using 20% of your 1RM.

    I have actually Been doing this method on my arms and legs for a couple months. Some of the Kaatsu training says you can do this 2 times per day, I don't. I do it twice per week right now, but now that I rarely get DOMS I will increase the frequency.

    For the arms I use 5 or 10 pounds for curls, then wall tricep extensions, 3x30 with a half minute rest between sets. For legs I do jackknife squats or half squats, 3x30, body weight. Squeeze the muscle hard at the top of the rep. The pump is amazingly awesome and painful, but in a good way.

    In less than two months, I've gained 1/2 inch on my arms, about the same on my legs. After the first of the year I will move the occlusion below my knees and elbows and start working my calves and forearms and continue the work on the upper arms and legs.

    Doesn't seem like it could be set up to work on torso muscles i.e. core, chest, back...???

    Ok, I did some searching and I do recollect seeing awhile back references to "occulsion" training. This sounds a little familiar now. I mostly power lift at this time. My priority is on strength performance firstly - and being eye candy for hawt babes secondly. The only big lift that would apply to BFR training is the squat. Looks like a good way to go to increase the biceps and triceps and calves too. For body building I guess. I might get some BFR straps to enhance my biceps. It would be nice to have 20 inch biceps if only for pointing the way to the beach if you happen to live in southern California...hehehe!!...Dennis

    There is carryover to parts of the body that do not have occlusion bands in place, so the torso will still be affected also.
