The Muscle Couple saw many cool things this past weekend at the Olympia Fitness Expo in Las Vegas.
Nothing impressed us more than the radical new exercise device:
We are huge fans of this product and recommend it as enthusiastically as anything we’ve ever tried.
The Isolator will provide every training modality an improved “prime mover/target muscle” fiber recruitment when performing sets and reps. It does this by ensuring pure isolation of the prime movers while minimizing if not eliminating all together ancillary(smaller/indirect)muscle recruitment when executing a rep.
Imagine reducing 50% of the amount of weight you’re lifting and still getting as effective if not a better burn in the target muscle? Believe it.
In the video below, Jay demonstrates the device’s multiple use applications for Chest, Back and Deltoids. He also interviews the inventor of The Isolator David Vollmer JR and gets his take on why he created it.
Check it out!
You can also go to their site and download their PDF of some of the exercises and movements you can execute while wearing the device.
We’ve listed them out for you. Keep in mind this is just a few of the many different exercises you can execute with The Isolator.

In our opinion, Dave Vollmer JR the owner and inventor of the Device has provided a radical leap forward for exercise, fitness and bodybuilding enthusiasts. It’s awesome.
For people practicing HIT, it’s even better as the The Isolator ensures each and every rep recruits only the prime mover exclusively allowing you to take your set to true positive failure.
We recommend going to their site and buying one of these devices for yourself.
If you’re a trainer working for a gym, you should discuss with your owner/manager buying multiple devices.
Please tell them “The Muscle Couple sent you” when speaking to a representative.
And feel free to let us know your thoughts on the device after incorporating it into your training routine.
