    From looking at the above links, this is what I gathered:
    -wear a tourniquet
    -hold your breath

    And your muscles will get hyoooge...

    Yeah... I didnt think it made much sense

    Kaatsu implies the practice of occlusion

    In medical terms, occlusion is the act of occluding (obstructing); a shutting off or obstruction of something, in this case, the blood flow of muscles.

    Kaatsu training applies occlusion by restricting blood flow to target muscle groups. You basically apply a tourniquet or a tight wrap to the proximal portion of the target limb in order to fully or partially restrict blood flow for the duration of a low intensity exercise session. Its rumored to do in 2 weeks what regular weight training does in 5.

    And there IS a good deal of US researched data on the topic. Students with EBschost or JSTOR PW should have access to studies and academic journals.

    I don't think the extra muscle mass will be worth the looks you get in the gym for slapping a tourniquet around your legs before doing calf raises.
