What is occlusion training?

Occlusion training originates from Japan and is known as ‘Kaatsu’. The principle of occlusion is to restrict the blood flow to the muscles, which causes an accumulation of blood in the muscles.

Countless research results from all over the world show that occlusion training increases muscle growth and at the same time reduces the tensions on joints and tendons because of the light weights used when training with occlusion bands.

When training with occlusion bands, they must be tightening on either your arms or legs (watch training instructions and video). Occlusion training is based on lighter weights than normal and a higher amount of repetitions causing the blood to accumulate which increases your metabolism and releases a larger amount of growth hormones.

Is it safe to train with occlusion bands?

Despite it may seem absurd to tighten occlusion bands on arms and legs to restrict blood flow to the muscles, none of the numerous scientific studies indicate that occlusion training is dangerous. No health risk risks have been established or documented related with occlusion training.
