Zottman curls i never see these Days...another Gironda favourite.


I've tried and still use more than a few of Gironda's pet exercises. But, I've tried Zottman curls several times and do not care for them at all.

i agree 100%. I feel that Hammer curls or Reverse Curls are more effective( i do them on my preacher bench).

Yeah, with Zottman's I feel like I'm doing a baton twirl at the top of the movement. The tension doesn't feel right. I'm probably not doing it correctly.

Stephen (Funk) and others, I just got this Football bar, loaded with 100 lbs of Dan Lurie (Brooklyn, NY) plates, for $90.00 on Craigslist.
A steal...

The plates alone go for a buck a pound on eBay all day long...

You know what? That's a great idea, and beats the hell out of holding a plate against your temple while laying on your side.
I may try making one of these!

Does that have a fleece-type lining? My first gym (the very old-school one) had a harness like that. You could tell from the color and condition of the leather that it was something of an antique, but guys loved it. I never knew who made it, but I wonder now if it was a York original. When it came to that and the one you mentioned, it's hard to believe these days that they ever made anything like that to last so long.

When I asked the front desk to order me a leather model for my personal use, the ones they make now are not the same, which truly disappointed me. The rivets and other hardware just don't seem to be as durable as the "house harness." I wasn't crazy about putting on my head something that the whole gym community had worn and sweat in; especially that liner, which was like a sponge! Most guys who used it wore a hood or cap underneath for that reason.

The only disadvantage of that style of harness is you can't really position it to work the sides of your neck. But, I'll bet that football helmet can! Wink

These (at least, their modern day equivalent's) and the lateral raise version are the only "machines" I regularly use. In each movement, the stress is placed as close to the desired spot as is possible. There is little room for your arms to contribute to the movement, and maximum tension is kept on the target muscles.

arm blaster, never thought too much of these, i had one used a couple of times didn't care for the feel. Angry Angry Angry Angry




I felt like it restricted my breathing. Some guys use them and LOVE'em. I tried one while doing cable press-downs to keep my elbows in check, but never saw a "need" for it. It's been years since I touched or even seen an arm-blaster.

yes that one has a fleece like lining, the old york was just made of  the same material like a lifting strap for deadlifts. the head helmet thing looks like you could work your neck from all angles.

i don't think much of them either just keep it around for a curiosity piece. i wonder if these two guys ever really used them for any length of time or were they just trying to help weider move product.
