Effects of vascular occlusion?

Posted by overfiftylifter on 27 Sep 2011 at 00:14 GMT

It is possible that one reason for the favorable results using higher rep training is the greater buildup of local metabolites associated with hypertrophy due to the created local ischemic environment? Is it possible that a Kaatsu type effect(lower load higher rep) is produced that some studies show produces similar changes to higher load lifting?
