KAATSU Specialist Series: KAATSU Push-ups
After a warm-up of KAATSU Cycles on the KAATSU Master 2.0 or KAATSU Cycle 2.0 unit, you can do the Standard KAATSU 3-Point Arm Exercises (i.e., Hand Clenches + Biceps Curls + Triceps Extensions), you can try doing sets of KAATSU push-ups (i.e., three sets of push-ups at your Optimal SKU pressure levels).
Try the first set of push-ups. Continue until you reach muscular failure. Ideally, your Optimal SKU will allow you to do between 15-25 push-ups.
Then rest 30 seconds and start your second set of push-ups.
Do the second set of push-ups until you reach muscular failure. Ideally, if your Optimal SKU is set properly, you will not be able to repeat the same number of push-ups in the second set as you did in the first set. You may be able to do only 5-15 push-ups on the second set. This is OK and actually exactly what you want.
Then rest another 30 seconds and start your third set of push-ups. Do the third set of push-ups until you reach muscular failure. Ideally, your number of push-ups will decrease again. This indicates you are set with your Optimal SKU.
This is a great way to build strength and develop tone in your upper body.
If you cannot do push-ups, try using a resistance band while standing up and do these types of exercises:
