jeffy87 saidAs the title says, I was wondering if wearing one of those iPod armbands affects strength or mass gains in the arm it's wrapped around? I would think that the band would impede blood circulation in the arm, but I can't exactly predict the consequences of decreased circulation. Any thoughts, ideas, or links on the subject?
I've seen several guys where the spot where they wore the band was smaller, from the compression.
My arms are to big for them, anyway, and I have to use knee braces, if I'm going to do anything on my arms.
The arm band definitely can impede growth on those guys that are serious lifters.
Logan noticed that his arm was balanced one day. The cause...the dumb arm band. He quit using it and he's balanced now.
