Arm Blaster Review, Results + My Thoughts (Bicep Blaster)

The Arm Blaster - Your #1 Tool For BIG Biceps...

The following post will detail my thoughts and experience using an arm blaster, an unconventional training tool often used in the golden era of bodybuilding. Known as the arm blaster, also referred to as a bicep blaster.

The arm blaster is a fantastic tool, when coupled with an optimized training regime and the mindset of a winner you can net some fantastic results.


What Actually Is An Arm Blaster?

An arm blaster is a harness with a metal plate. The harness slides over your neck, allowing you to lock your arms into the grooved sections of each side of the arm blaster’s metal plate.

The arm blasters primary purpose is to ensure greater isolation on the biceps when performing different variations of bicep curls e.g. EZ curls and dumbbell curls. This isolation is achieved due to the grooved sections of the arm blaster holding your elbows in place. When performing a traditional bicep curl without an arm blaster when your form begins to deteriorate the natural thing to do is to begin to use momentum and swing backwards with your elbows to muscle the weight up. The arm blaster holds your elbows firmly in place, forcing your biceps to work harder to curl the weight up as they no longer have any assistance.

This is a simple yet fantastic concept as greater isolation means greater tension and stress on the muscle, greater stress and tension on the muscle will promote potential growth in your biceps.

Arnold Schwarzenegger & The Arm Blaster


In Arnold Schwarzenegger’s books he highlights just how affective arm blasters can be, as the arm blaster did become an essential training tool for Arnold, and the photos of Arnold going around on the internet today is in my opinion the reason they have gained popularity in modern bodybuilding.

My thoughts On The Arm Blaster

I personally first used an arm blaster in a gym while travelling through Indonesia 2 years ago, the pump I get from performing standing dumbbell curls with an arm blaster is unlike any other arm pump I have had before. Needless to say since arriving back home I ordered an arm blaster and have been using it since.

My biceps are not lagging, but I do find it harder to build the peak of the bicep in comparison to most people (which genetics do play a large role in) however since concentrating on perfect form with my curls while utilising my arm blaster I have noticed a significant increase in the development of my bicep peaks.

I became qualified in a field I was passionate about. I founded several online businesses that allow me to pursue ideas and projects in my life that I am passionate about without having to constantly worry about money. I published several eBooks explaining the training and dieting techniques I used to achieve the body I have today. I learnt a plethora of new information on dieting and fitness by reading and applying what I read, to find out what does work and what doesn’t work, because as I’m sure you’ve noticed the health and fitness industry is full of non-sense claims and BS. I found out what was true and what worked for me and applied that knowledge. And you bet I had fun during the whole process.
