Arm Blaster Reviews

"The armblaster is an incredible training tool! I personally find it good for isolating the biceps. A lot of people find it difficult to isolate their biceps with exercises such as barbell and dumbell curls. The arm blaster prevents you from cheating and you can target the weight right on the biceps. I love it!"
-Lee Hayward

The arm blaster a thin strip of metal that hangs from your shoulders and prevents your elbows from moving forward and back during a curl forces your biceps to work much harder than they would if allowed to swing a little. Consequently, this curl is the best single exercise for working all parts of the biceps with maximum intensity, according to an MRI analysis conducted by Per Tesch, Ph.D., author of Target Bodybuilding. And the biceps are the best muscles to display on the beach, according to our experts, especially if a rumble breaks out over blanket space. ?The stronger your biceps, the faster you can punch, says Tom Seabourne, Ph.D., a sports psychologist, martial artist, and author of Complete Cardio Kickboxing.

Super Arm Blaster Workout

Curls
Equipment Needed: any of the following: straight bar, free weights, EZ curl bar
How to: Grasp the straight bar and curl towards your chest. Make sure to get a slow negative after lifting to your chest to build mass! An arm blaster works good to keep the movement strict. Don't lean forward. You can also do this one arm at a time for variation using free weights.

Hammer Curls
Equipment Needed: Free weights
How to: Turn wrist from normal curl position 90 degrees in the direction so your palms are pointed towards each other. Hammer curls work the biceps incredibly intensely; however, they are intended as a brachialis and forearm supinator exercise. Press your upper arms against the sides of the arm blaster to keep them in position throughout the set. Use biceps strength to curl the weight simultaneously upward and foreward in a semicurcular arc to shoulder level. Powerfully contract your biceps at the finish position, then slowly lower the weights back at your sides.

Dumbbell Curls
Equipment Needed: Free weights
How to: Like barbell curls, these place intense stress on the biceps and lesser stress on the forearm. The undergrip is the primary method used to grip the dumbells, but for variation and to add more stress to the forearms, use an overhand (supinated) grip. Press your upper arms against the sides of your torso to keep them in position throughout the set. Use biceps strength to curl the weight in a semicurcular arc to your chin. As the dumbbells reach the halfway point, rotate the wrists so that your palms are facing upwards (pronation) for the second half of the workout. Powerfully contract your biceps at the finish position, then slowly lower the bar back to your thighs. Make sure the armblaster is slightly above your elbow on the back of your tricep.

Reverse Curls
Equipment Needed: Straight Bar (optimal) or free weightsHow to: Grasp the straight bar on the top, palms down (as your palms would be if you were typing). Now curl, make sure to get a slow negative after lifting to your chest! An arm blaster works good to keep the movement strict. It is actually very hard to do this without the arm blaster. This is good to hit the bicep at a different angle to build mass. Don't lean forward.

Cable Pressdowns for Triceps
Equipment Needed: Cable Pulley Machine
How to: Grasp the handle with an over hand grip and about 10 inches in between your hands. Push the bar down all the way then raise it as far as you can with out moving your elbows. An arm blaster works good to keep the movement strict. Don't lean forward.
