Interesting article on KAATSU or Occlusion Training. Involves using a tourniquet on your extremity during low resistance weight training. Supposedly, the exercise metabolites are concentrated in the muscle undergoing resistance thereby getting incredible surges in growth hormone and other anabolic activators! One Japanese study from the late 90's documented a 240 X increase in growth hormone with perpetuation of increased levels above control for 24 hours! I plan on giving this a try and documenting the results on this blog.
