Building Biceps With KAATSU





























Some KAATSU male users want to know the best way to quickly increase their bicep size with KAATSU Air Bands and their KAATSU Nano or KAATSU Master units. Dr. Yoshiaki Sato, the 67-year-old inventor shown above, recommends the following:

Preparation
*Be well-hydrated.
*Understand the standard KAATSU protocols (i.e., always have good capillary refill within 2-3 seconds, no occlusion, no numbness).
*Always start with the KAATSU Cycle (i.e., 8 cycles of 20 seconds pressure on + 5 seconds pressure off).

Key Points
*Do KAATSU 2-3 times per week.
*Use a high Base SKU and the highest Optimal SKU that is safe and falls within the standard KAATSU guidelines (i.e., good capillary refill, no occlusion, no numbness).
*The entire bicep-focused workout is approximately 10 minutes.
*Do not release the air in the KAATSU Air Bands throughout the entire workout (unless, of course, you feel numbness or become lightheaded).


Protocols
*STEP 1: Start with the KAATSU Cycle at an average Base SKU and average Optimal SKU (e.g., if your Optimal SKU is 250 SKU, start with an SKU of 220-230).
*STEP 2: Use Hand Grips to do one set of hand clenches until muscular failure, enabling the lactic acid to being accumulating.
*STEP 3: Use light weights (e.g., 5 lbs./2.5 kg dumbbell) to do bicep curls slowly and deliberately until muscular failure to reached.
*If you can do over 60 repetitions before reaching failure, then the KAATSU Base SKU and Optimal SKU are too low. Increase the Base SKU or Optimal SKU so ideally the number of repetitions on the first set is 30-40 repetitions before failure.

*After the first set of 30-40 repetitions, set the dumbbells down and rest for approximately 15 seconds.
*Start the second set of bicep curls. It is ideal if muscular failure comes before 20 repetitions.
*Set the dumbbells down and rest for approximately 15 seconds.
*Start the third set of bicep curls. It is ideal if muscular failure comes before 10 repetitions.
*Set the dumbbells down and rest for approximately 15 seconds.
*Start the fourth and last set of bicep curls. Muscular failure should come quickly after only a few repetitions. The discomfort should be quite significant.
*STEP 4: Return to the hand grips and do one set of hand clenches until muscular failure. The discomfort should be extreme.

Post-Workout Sensations
*You will feel very pumped up after each KAATSU session.
*You may feel post-workout fatigue if the sessions are extraordinarily intense.
