After a warm-up of KAATSU Cycles on the KAATSU Master 2.0 or KAATSU Cycle 2.0 unit, you can do the Standard KAATSU 3-Point Leg Exercises (i.e., Sitting Heel Raises + Leg Curls + Non-lock Quarter Squats), you can try doing various sets of KAATSU arm, leg and core exercises (i.e., three sets of each at your Optimal SKU pressure levels).

Use very light weights – or even water bottles in each hand.

Start your first set and continue repetitions until you reach failure, then rest 30 seconds. Start your second set and continue doing repetitions until you reach failure again, then rest 30 seconds. Finish off with a third set.

Note 1: for older people or less active individuals, you can do these exercises without any weights or water bottles. Just hold your arms or legs as shown.

Note 2: for people of all ages and different levels of strength, you can incorporate more motions into these sets, even minor muscular contractions, to help build tension and add various levels of intensity. Any functional movement with emphasis on mobility and/or stability is enhanced with the KAATSU Air Bands on.

Note 3: In essence, KAATSU is an effective, efficient adjunct to any existing protocols and exercises that you do, albeit the duration, intensity, number or resistance with the KAATSU Air Bands on can be reduced.
