Twisting Arm

Effect

David Blaine puts one hand on the ground and slowly twists it 1080 degrees.

Secret

Don't try this one at home! In 1998 Blaine underwent surgery for a muscular condition and had rubber ligaments installed in his upper arm. They allow him to perform this feat, but also make his arm stretch uncomfortably if he's carrying anything heavy.End of story

If you would like to perform this effect yourself without all the expensive surgery, you can find it at Hank Lee's Magic Factory and Trickshop.com
