Tightening The Skin With KAATSU

Optimal movements to help improve​ and tighten loose folds of skin due to surgery and significant weight loss include the exercises described below. Tightening the skin and underlying muscle will take some time, but improvement is best achieved by doing 2 KAATSU sessions per day with 3-6 KAATSU Cycle sets on both your arms and legs:

Upper Body with KAATSU Air Bands on your Arms
> in the KAATSU Cycle mode

1. Extend your arm outwards from your body and rotate your arms clockwise and counterclockwise. Keep your arms in the same position, approximately at shoulder height, but twist your wrists as far as possible in the clockwise direction and then in the opposite (counterclockwise) direction. Move your arms slowly rather than quickly.
2. Let your arms hang naturally downwards from your body while you walk and alternately rotate your arms in the clockwise and counterclockwise​ directions.
3. Do the Standard KAATSU 3-Point Arm Exercises that include Hand Clenches + Biceps Curls + Triceps Extension, optimally performed slowly.

Lower Body - KAATSU Air Bands on your Legs

1. Walk comfortably. Optimally and ideally, you can walk barefoot on the sand or, alternatively, on grass or uphill.
2. Do Standard KAATSU 3-Point Leg Exercises that include Standing Heel Raises + Standing Leg Curls (bringing heels to buttocks) + Non-lock (Partial) Quarter Squats. One set is performed with toes pointed inwards; another set is performed with the toes pointed outwards; last set is performed with the feet pointed straight (normally).
