We sure do! We use DHL and UPS but if you’re in a more exotic country (we’ve had French Polynesia before) then we’ll find another option. All shipments are tracked so you can check the status once it leaves us.
Bench Blaster Original
Our original and most popular Bench Blaster
Why the Bench Blaster?
★ The Bench Blaster Creates a 'spring' off the chest giving the advantage of overloading safely (a.k.a. using more weight). Most lifters see about a 10-20% increase in the amount of weight they can bench press whilst using the Bench Blaster
★ Create the PERFECT bench press rep after rep by keeping the elbows tucked, the lats tight and with much greater intensity in your workout
★ Great tool for all lifters wanting to add pounds to their bench press or work through an injury
How to use
Place your arms through the loops, roughly around your biceps with the band across your chest. Use for bench press, press ups and dips. Get Bigger. Stronger. Faster.

Do you ship worldwide?
Is the image on the belt designer the final version?
No, we try to capture as many requirements as possible before we handover to our inhouse designer. Once your order comes through, we’ll get to work on the design and send you a mockup for review afterwards. We don’t start anything until we get your final approval so don’t worry if you want to change your mind!
What kind of materials do you use?
We only use the finest analine leathers which are upholstery lever quality and the best suedes. For the inner part of the belt we use vegetable tanned leather. Other manufacturers use cheap split leather inside of their belts which affects the longevity. For the metals, we use stainless steel unless colour options are selected.
Do belts really take 8 weeks?
That’s a general timeframe although we aim for sooner. Other companies offering ‘Custom Belts’ simply print onto existing poor quality belts. Our custom belts are made from scratch.
What logo design options are possible?
Although we aim to do most designs, if your image is very complex in shades or detailing, we wont be able to reproduce it with embroidery. Think 2 shades per colour or checkout the many examples on our Instagram. For example we wouldn’t be able to replicate a pencil sketch of a lion but a lion emoji would be fine!
Do belts ever take longer?
On rare occasions yes. If we are not happy with the work or some tidying up is needed we’ll ensure this is resolved prior to sending. We would rather spend a little longer than send you a subpar belt.
Is it possible to expedite my order?
On rare occasions we can do this but we have a large backlog, expediting one order may delay another order so we try and be fair to our customers. Rest assured we’ll make it as soon as possible to the highest standards?
What is Edge Coating?
This option allows the painting of the edge of the belt, so without this you would see the natural leather. Some prefer to see the materials inside whilst others prefer to coordinate the colours.
How do I measure myself?
We recommend measuring around the navel and advise against going off your waist size. For custom orders we can also do custom sizing. Don’t worry if you’re in the middle of 2 sizes, simply mention it in the Anything Else box and we’ll ensure we make it to your spec.
What colour options are available?
Check out our belt designer, we have a ton of options in both leather and suede that we are constantly adding to. We also have some camo options that look very cool!
Why are the levers more expensive?
Most of our competition use pewter levers. These are cheaply made and have a tendency to crack. We use stainless steel, in the unlikely even you have an issue with it, we’ll replace it.
Why should I order from Gunsmith? What makes your belts different?
We can sing our own praises all day! Take a look at our Instagram, IFBB Pros, Strongmen, WFBB Pros, Olympia winners all use Gunsmith Fitess.
Can I cancel my order?
If you cancel your order prior to getting our mockup, that’s not an issue. If you cancel your order after we sent the mockup, we’ll refund you minus £20 for our design efforts. However, once you give approval to go ahead, belts CANNOT be cancelled.
How can I reach you guys if I have questions?
Hit us up over email, Facebook or Instagram and we’ll get back to you right away.
This really does deliver a 10 to 20% increase in bench press for maximum singles or reps depending on one's level of experience. I have more than a quarter of a century of gym time and my training partner just a few years and both got increases in lifting weight on the first use of the blaster. It's of good quality and, for those of us not competing in power lifting, a viable alternative to a suit.
The trick now will be translating the assistance of the bench blaster to real gains in strength but that's where the right training regime comes in!
- Helps you work with heavier weight, not too much more though from my own experience thus far
- keeps you tucked and in good form - perfect for my poor left shoulder, this will lead to a consistent form pattern and potential shoulder recovery
- great for volume for drop sets and burning out as you can do a lot more reps
- can be used on other exercises such as any bench movements, incline, decline, Dumbbell or Barbell
- can be used on dips and so on, be creative
Thats all I have to say for now in terms of pros, train smart with it, do not always use it and do not cheat with it, I have two chest sessions per week in which I am planning to use it for one of them.
- Don't really have much to say bar the sizing is a bit iffy, I ordered a medium and I think its perfect, there is no size guide from what I can see so I had to make a guess based on my body.
I've suffered from rotator cuff impingement for over a year. I got sick of benching with dumbbells and, after doing some research on Mark Bell's Slingshot, decided to give Bench Blaster a try. I originally bought the Reflex, but I found that XXLarge was too loose. Also, I wanted more support, so I bought the Bench Blaster in XLarge.
I found it made a difference in terms of comfort when Benching. It took some of the strain off my shoulders. I can't speak for it's ability to overload, since I'm using sub-maximal weights at the moment. But even with those, there is a noticable difference between Benching the same weight raw and wearing the Blaster.
If you have shoulder problems like me, you could do worse than try the Blaster before giving up Bench.
I have been training for some years and have typically had a good bench. I recently got involved in powerlifting and am training to compete.
Since upping my weight and training considerably differently from how I had trained in the past (overloading) my shoulders have been really giving me trouble and preventing me from making progress.
The bench blaster really assists my form and keeps my elbows tucked throughout the lift which keeps me injury free.
Good piece of kit to add to your workout collection
Bought this to help with a torn rotator cuff. Really helps to keep your shoulders tight and holds those arms in to stop them splaying out to wide, the cause of the tear due to overstretching!
Would highly recommend.
