#kaatsu walking (and more)

It works (P<0.05).

[Patron link]

The most basic intervention: #kaatsu walking.

Muscle size and strength are increased following walk training with restricted venous blood flow from the leg muscle, Kaatsu-walk training (Abe et al., 2006)

6 days a week for 3 weeks: 2 minutes walking with 1 minute rest, five “sets.” So about 15 minutes a day. The #kaatsu bands provide ~200 mg Hg pressure, so it feels like getting your blood pressure measured, and as of yet, there’s no evidence suggesting tighter = better.

Growth hormone. Wild!

Strength & hypertrophy: remember, the intervention was barely anything. 15 minutes of walking with or without #kaatsu bands.
