74-year-old Tap Nixon On KAATSU, Day 3

74-year-old Tap Nixon, a former basketball player, hurt his left shoulder that has restricted his range of motion and eliminated his ability to shoot basketballs.

After his first session on April 9th 2018, he followed up with his second KAATSU session on April 11th, and his third session on April 12th 2018.

He did 5 KAATSU Cycles (totaling 15 minutes) on the KAATSU Master device using KAATSU Air Bands at a Base SKU pressure of 30 SKU and an Optimal Pressure of 250 SKU on his arms. He added two KAATSU Cycles on his legs of 35 Base SKU and 300 Optimal SKU on his legs.

During the KAATSU Cycles on his arms, he did the standard KAATSU 3-Point Exercises (Hand Clenches + Biceps Curls + Triceps Extensions) while the pressure was on and he rested while the pressure was off.

When the KAATSU Air Bands were on his legs doing the KAATSU Cycle, he did leg extensions while sitting and contracting his quadriceps.

His improved range of motion of his left shoulder is significant from Day One. For his full progression over two weeks, visit here.
