Ok, this may sound completely ridiculous and will probably be badly wrong but, I was thinking the other day that when you tie an elastic band around your finger, it cuts-off/restricts the blood supply to that particular area.
Now, if you worked out just your upper body in one workout and not your legs at all, and then cut off your blood supply to your legs somehow, that this would increase the supply of blood to the upper body providing the upper body muscles with more blood and all that good stuff meaning greater gains. Of course this can only be done for a short period.
Yeah, a crazy stupid idea. And i’m not suggesting that anyone does this or that have tried this in the past either, but I’d like like to know what you think of such an idea.
So, what you think?
(And be serious)
