Hi John, I was wondering if you have looked into Blood Flow Restriction Training (BFR also known as Kaatsu) and what your thoughts are on it. Here is a link to a new video that Dr. Mercola posted that explains what it is, and what the physiological effects are.

I was thinking it would be very interesting to use this tool in conjunction with DVR as well as bodyweight exercises. I don't think it would work as well with Isometrics, but I could be wrong. Anyway, I would appreciate your thoughts.


I wonder about the quality of the muscle that is developed in this manner, in comparison to that from conventional methods. I do think it makes a lot of sense for the elderly, and rehab due to the smaller amount of force required to get results.
