Using KAATSU To Recover From Broken Ribs
After his recent motorcycle injury, KAATSU Global provided the following recommendations to professional motocross biker Wil Hahn who has cracked ribs and a concussion:
1. Focus on doing the KAATSU Cycle function on a KAATSU Nano device (see below) during his recovery.
2. Start with 2 "KAATSU 20" Cycles (i.e., 8 cycles of 20 seconds on + 5 seconds off). Each of these automatic "KAATSU 20" Cycles is 3 minutes 20 seconds in duration.
3. Then proceed to 3-5 manual "KAATSU 60" Cycles (i.e., 60 seconds on + 5 seconds off).
4. Because he is in such excellent physical shape, he can manually tighten the KAATSU Air Bands (i.e., the Base SKU pressure) to fairly high levels, but no one should ever occlude or feel numbness while doing KAATSU Cycle or KAATSU Training.
5. He always tightens to a level where his limbs take on a pinkness or a beefy red color when doing KAATSU Cycle or KAATSU Training.
6. After he confirms his CPT (capillary refill time) so it is under 3 seconds, he uses a KAATSU Nano (or KAATSU Master) to inflate the pneumatic KAATSU Air Bands to his Optimal SKU pressure for that day. Again, because he is in such excellent physical shape, his Optimal SKU is much higher than the normal adult.
7. While he is doing the KAATSU Cycles, he can just sit and relax, watch TV, or work/play on his laptop.
8. After he is cleared to exercise after recovering from his concussion, he can begin incorporating the KAATSU Training function and can add in the standard KAATSU 3-point exercises on his arms and his legs to the KAATSU 20 Cycle and KAATSU 60 Cycle protocols. Over time, he can then begin to incorporate KAATSU into his normal training after he is fully recovered from his concussion.
