One of the world’s most popular actors and highly diversified entrepreneurs, Mark Wahlberg leads a remarkable life. Even his fitness regime is unusual and specialized. Wahlberg explains about BFR training on Instagram,
“B Strong training bands restricts the blood flow.”
Wahlberg is fit, rich and successful as a producer, business leader and father. He works out intensely between 3:40 – 5:15 am with heavy weights and B Strong training bands that he shows off on his new HBO Max special Wahl Street.
But is everyone that motivated, driven, and focused?
“I wish I could get up at 2:30 am like Mark and hit it hard all day long,” says Steven Munatones. “He is so focused and achieves what he sets his mind to. He is a great actor and is so successful in everything he touches. But for more common people, fathers and mothers across America who do not have staff and have to report to others – not give orders and set their own schedules, there is KAATSU.”
Most people would prefer not to lift heavy weights and be so intense in the weight room on a daily basis. But in a heartbeat, many men would gladly switch their dad bod to Wahlberg’s physique.
That is where KAATSU comes into play. If a working middle manager wants to gain some muscle tone with a minimum of effort and a maximum of safety, KAATSU is it. If a middle-age man wants to see a little more definition in their upper body and a little less softness in their torso, KAATSU is the ideal. If people are too exhausted after work – or too sleepy before work – then doing KAATSU at their desk or on their sofa is the answer.
The KAATSU Cycle presents a new paradigm for the overstressed and overly busy employees and for people with hectic, chaotic lives sandwiched between their children and parents. The same goes for people who are recovering from surgery or limited mobility in their limbs.
While Wahlberg pushes himself to the max with heavy weights and B Strong bands, KAATSU, the original BFR and inspiration for B Strong, can be done anywhere anytime by anyone. That is a seismic difference. The choice for individuals from the U.S. military and those going to the Paralympics or Warrior Games, KAATSU is safe and effective, but more importantly, KAATSU is extremely convenient and easy to use.
“Your legs are stronger than life…”
said New York Mets star outfielder Yoenis Cespedes about his use of KAATSU on an ESPN special. Cespedes explained his condition after a tough KAATSU leg workout with sports broadcaster Jessica Mendoza in an ESPN interview.
Mendoza tried KAATSU with Cespedes and Mike Barwis, an early adopter of KAATSU, at the Barwis Methods Training Center in Port St Lucie, Florida.
Personal trainers, strength and conditioning coaches, and exercise physiologists believe that optimal muscle building requires lifting of weights or doing resistance exercises. This leads to DOMS (Delayed-onset muscle soreness) that is felt after a hard workout and acute muscle soreness that is felt during or immediately after a workout. Conventional wisdom is that the heavier the weight and/or the more repetitions or time in the gym, the larger and faster muscles will develop.
The muscle-building process leads to DMOS where the muscle fibers are damaged while weight lifting, and leads to the secretion of HGH (Human Growth Hormone) that results in muscle recovery, growth and size.
But not everyone has the luxury of time and opportunity to workout like Wahlberg and Cespedes.
In that case, KAATSU is the answer.
The preciseness and specificity, convenience and ease-of-use that are enabled by KAATSU equipment is an unparalleled opportunity for the average non-actor and non-professional athlete.
