The Kaatsu Method, also known as vascular occlusion, uses pressure bands worn during exercise to cause blood flow restriction which stimulates rapid muscle growth. Dr. Jim Stray-Gundersen is a medical doctor and exercise physiologist who has been very involved in the US Olympic training program for a number of years. Dr. Stray-Gundersen has developed the BStrong brand of BFR bands to help athletes and exercise enthusiasts experience rapid muscle growth without having to spend hours pumping iron. Dr. Stray-Gundersen joins me to talk about how he discovered blood flow restriction, how it can help promote muscle growth without a lot of damage to the body and how you can use it to supercharge your fitness results. You will learn all about one of the most effective way to get results with a safe method of hacking exercise on this episode of the All About Fitness podcast.
