Why add these Spotting Arms?

Ironmaster know how to make heavy duty, beautifully designed and fit for purpose strength training equipment. These spotting arms tick all the boxes and are a must have for IM2000 owners. Good equipment is something you should only have to purchase once for your home gym, so the question remains – why settle for anything less than the best?

Heavy Duty

We know you value high quality materials and need the safety, security, and reliability of tough design. These spotting arms give you the extra bit of support you need to keep pushing hard in training.

The arms are rated to 227 kgs (a very conservative estimate, based on protecting your IM2000 uprights) and 35 cm in length – allowing plenty of room to squat, bench press or shoulder press in safety without a training partner.

Thoughtfully engineered

The special paint finish on the IM2000 side rails is one of the secrets behind its super smooth lifting bar action. The Spotting Arms help protect this, with nylon protective inserts where they touch the uprights.

Exercises to try with your IM2000 Spotting Arms

IronmasterUK Chest

Bench Press

Set the Super Bench to the desired angle and correctly position the Spotting Arms. Use a medium width grip that forms a 90 degree angle between the upper arms and the forearms when the barbell is at your chest. Unrack the bar and hold it directly over you with straight arms. Lower the bar slowly until it touches your lower chest then press the bar back up, focusing on your chest and contracting your pecs. When your set is completed, re-rack the bar.

IronmasterUK Deltoid

Barbell Shoulder Press

Hit your shoulders by positioning the Super Bench in the upright position and the Spotting Arms protecting you. Lift the barbell to your starting position at shoulder height slightly in front of your head and with your palms facing forward. Drive the barbell upward until your arms are fully extended. Pause, then lower the barbell slowly.

And these are just a few suggestions!
