Gamal Awad And Hawley Bennett On KAATSU, The Original BFR

For who? Olympic athletes, tactical athletes, competitive athletes, Marines
For what? Rehabilitation, recovery, strength, KAATSU At Home

The husband-and-wife duo of U.S. Marines Major Gamal Awad and two-time Olympian Hawley Bennett talked about their use of KAATSU the original BFR with retired Navy SEAL captain and KAATSU Master Specialist John Doolittle on a recent discussion.

The pair regularly use the original KAATSU Nano unit with their KAATSU Air Bands. Awad is a tactical athlete who has pushed himself for years to maintain sufficient strength, speed and stamina for his military responsiblities. Hawley competes in equestrian events representing her native Canada.

Awad and Hawley have used KAATSU to help with their rehabilitation from numerous injuries – all quite serious from broken pelvis bones to broken backs. They also use KAATSU in the course of their daily exercise routines. Awad talks of his daily need for KAATSU while Olympian Hawley talked about her own KAATSU journey in the podcast above.

Awad is shown below on the day of his most recent injury – and soon thereafter during his recovery with his pink KAATSU Air Bands on his arms.
