His quest for true innovations brought early adopter Robert Heiduk to KAATSU. With a small international group of like-minded people he traveled directly to Japan to the inventor of Japanese pressure training. On the basis of this encounter sports scientist Heiduk created this comprehensive standard work. Most importantly, he added lots of research, that goes beyond the academic papers. It is aimed at coaches, athletes, physiotherapists, doctors, scientists, and students who would like to gain a deeper insight into the methodology of the original protocols of the KAATSU inventor Yoshiaki Sato.
The original core concepts of KAATSU-Training were not yet available in this form. In this book, they have been further restructured to a new approach. The book arouses curiosity about KAATSU-Training and its new possibilities in sport and therapy.
Robert Heiduk’s book on KAATSU-Training is a milestone on the field of Blood Flow Restriction Training and a „Must Have“ for every exercise and health professional.
