Arm blaster

The Arm Blaster is a piece of curved aluminium about 24″ long and 4″ high that is designed to be worn around the neck when performing bicep curls. The Blaster keeps your arms in a fixed position against your trunk, with the claim being that this promotes proper form while also isolating the biceps. The idea, of course, is to “maximize the strength-building benefits of bicep curls”, and to give you that massive pump.

The Arm Blaster is a piece of curved aluminium about 24″ long and 4″ high that is designed to be worn around the neck when performing bicep curls. The Blaster keeps your arms in a fixed position against your trunk, with the claim being that this promotes proper form while also isolating the biceps. The idea, of course, is to “maximize the strength-building benefits of bicep curls”, and to give you that massive pump.

Arm Blasters have been around for over 50 years, but I’m of the opinion that they had fallen out of favour for some time, and only returned as a popular training accessory when Rogue Fitness released their version of the Arm Blaster. I mean they’ve always been out there, but Rogue definitely helped to make them a thing again.

Arm blaster benefits:-

  • Teaches Good Form

The primary purpose is to lock in good form, by regularly using an arm blaster for your bicep workouts you’ll get in the habit of keeping your elbows in close to your sides, eliminating any and all swinging and focusing on a full contraction at the top of each repetition.

It’s quite rare to see a guy in the gym performing dumbbell or barbell curls without a bit of swinging, flaring of the elbows or partial repping – when it comes to ego lifting the bicep curl and the bench press are the two main offender

  • You’ll Keep Tension On The Muscle

Progressive overload is the key to gains in terms of both muscle size and strength, the bicep is a small muscle group but this same principle holds true.

In order to apply that progressive overload we need to overload the muscle, this overload comes by way of increased tension.

Every single workout you want to be increasing the tension on your biceps with increased weight increased reps and/or reduced rest time between sets.
