This episode is brought to you by KAATSU Training. KAATSU bands incorporate blood flow moderation training that tricks the body into thinking it lifts much heavier weights than it actually is. When traditional weight lifting requires you to reach 70-80% of your 1 repetition maximum to stimulate muscle hypertrophy, then KAATSU achieves that effect only at 20-30%. So, it’s perfect for treating injuries or used when you don’t have access to heavyweights.

Research about KAATSU bands also shows it lowers blood pressure, speeds up recovery from injuries, releases stem cells, builds muscle, burns fat and prevents age-related muscle loss. PLUS, you can travel with them easily and still get a good workout on the road. If you want to try out the KAATSU Cycle bands, then use the code SIIM for a 10% Discount at kaatsu-global.com! That’s kaatsu-global.com and the 10% code is SIIM.
