Depending on your goals, adding KAATSU might be a great addition to your resistance training workouts. There are several advantages to using KAATSU. Let’s look at a few of them.
KAATSU has been shown to improve strength and hypertrophy at lower intensities. This minimizes the risk of injury compared to lifting at the typical 80% of one repetition maximum weight. Using KAATSU also reduces or eliminates Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) so you can train more often.
Because of the physiological changes induced by KAATSU you’ll see faster gains in strength and hypertrophy. Get the results you want faster by incorporating KAATSU into your resistance training.
Systemic Changes Beyond Training
Resistance training is known to increase the size of blood vessels. KAATSU use also helps your body develop new blood vessels and has a systemic effect on the body that you can’t easily get from resistance training alone.
I hope this answers the question of why you should consider adding KAATSU to your resistance training program. If you would like more clarification, please read through the other FAQs about KAATSU, or leave a question in the comment box below.
