Yes, it’s true. You can get High Intensity Resistance Training (HIRT) results from Low Intensity Resistance Training (LIRT) when you add KAATSU.
This is one of the reasons KAATSU is such a game changer. Think of all the people who can’t lift heavy weights who can now prevent muscle atrophy or who can actually realize muscle hypertrophy by adding KAATSU.

- Deconditioned adults
- People with disabilities

It’s Too Good to be True
It sounded that way to me when I learned of KAATSU. Fortunately, this is one of those rare exceptions to the “rule” of ‘If it’s too good to be true, it probably is’. If you’re looking for information on how KAATSU works, click here for an explanation.
KAATSU has been used clinically in Japan since 1973. It’s been researched extensively (some research links are available here) and ongoing research into KAATSU is both verifying previous resesearch and exploring different ways KAATSU can benefit its users.
If Exercise Can Help, Add KAATSU
Exercise and strength training has been shown to help improve health and quality of life for many serious health conditions. Here are just a few examples.
Arthritis – Joint-friendly exercise can reduce arthritis pain, improve joint function, increase flexibility, combat fatigue, and improve circulation. Strong muscles can support and protect your arthritic joints, improving your overall quality of life.
Asthma – Exercise helps improve lung capacity, builds endurance, reduces inflammation, strengthens breathing muscles, increases blood flow to the lungs, and can improve asthma control.
Cancer – Consistent exercise improves cancer survival rates up to 50%, reduces fatigue, mitigates side effects of chemotherapy, helps chemotherapy work better, and improves overall quality of life for cancer patients.
Diabetes – Exercise lowers blood glucose levels, increases the body’s sensitivity to insulin which helps counter insulin resistance.
Heart Disease – Exercise increases HDL (“Good”) cholesterol levels and helps control triglycerides, reduces stress hormones that burden the heart, lowers blood pressure, controls weight, improves muscle’s ability to extract oxygen from blood, and reduces inflammation.
Using KAATSU is proven to boost the physiological effects of exercise, creating more benefits from training with low weights or even no weights. If you or someone you love would benefit from exercise, you can use KAATSU to improve your results.
Exercise is good. It’s better with KAATSU. Try it and see for yourself!
