Occlusion training

Anyone tried or expirimented with this, was listening to a podcast regarding it this morning.
how/what have you used for the bands to isolate the muscle? Bandages or anything cheap!

    I am not convinced by this, it may have some benefits but they will be minimal.
    I experimented with it but decided it was more hassle than it was worth. 
    The theory is that one is keeping released growth factors (endogenous MGF etc.) local in the tissue.
    As for bands just use a pair of knee wraps , you will need to wrap them painfully tight to be effective.

    Ignorance: Reassuringly Expensive.
