The most well known training protocol is 4 sets with 30-15-15-15 repetitions with 20% of your 1 RM (the weight you can lift one time).Pauses are 1 minute between each set, which means training for 6-8 minutes. This has been proved to be highly effective.
We have different band designs for the arm and leg occlusion training bands. While in development, we experimented with several band designs and found that a single layer band was unable to produce sufficient occlusion. This stems from two reasons: First, the tension around an object (in this case, a limb) needed to produce a given inward pressure increases linearly with the diameter of said object. Second, the inward pressure needed to reach a given degree of occlusion is larger in the legs than in the arms, probably owing to the fact, that the large vessels in the legs lie deeper and are more shielded bu muscle tissue. In order to overcome these problems and make leg training occlusions that actually work, contrary to many of the available commercial products, we created multi-layered leg training occlusion bands.
