Life’s too short to be half right! Two veteran podcasters try to answer a single question without any research – then ask an expert what they got right or wrong. Any question is fair game, but most involve health, fitness, nutrition, mental health, culture…even sex. They walk away with a better sense of the facts…and so do you.

You can call it Blood Flow Restriction (BRF), occlusion, or Kaatsu, but the idea is all the same: Keep some extra blood in the muscles of your arm or leg and get a massive pump. But is this superior to working out the regular way? When should you use it, and does it have any effect on rehab/recovery?

We ponder these questions and discus our own experience. Then, we bring in Layne Norton, someone with a long history of using this type of training, to help us understand what the actual benefits are.

Layne holds a PhD in Nutritional Sciences from University of Illinois, and is an author, bodybuilding/figure/physique coach, and a professional powerlifter.

Our ideas about the question start around 6:55.

Layne runs down the facts starting at around 12:40.

Huge thanks to Layne for being our expert. You can find him at and on Instagram: @biolayne. Check out his new book, Fat Loss Forever, on his website.
