    Is bending your wrist in arm wrestling cheating?

    i always do that and bring their hands towards me like a curl and they say i cheat, so i tell them they can do it aswell but they still lose, so is it cheating?

    I don't think so, I usually lean in towards my opponent and put my shoulder as close to my hand as possible and use my upper body weight. I win every time that way.

    No its not. Only infractions I know of are false starts and elbow lifts. You can bend your wrist and change your grip if you want.

    The best strategy to win is lean over and give your opponent a kiss on the lips and flick your tongue inside their mouth a bit. Then slam them down.



    Works 9.9 times out of 10. Hardcore arm wrestlers refuse to be distracted tho. Try to bro!

    nope not at all they dont know what there talking about. you have to start with wrist straight, but after that its all game. turning the wrist is known as a "hook", most arm wrestlers use this. when locked into a good hook its very hard to take an oppenent down all the way, you kind of have to go in burst with your shoulder to take them to the pad. Some people are good at "top rolls" also, a quick top roll is a good counter to a hook, but you have to lock it into place pretty quick.

    no its used by the best arm wrestlers to win... your first move should be pulling your hand and theirs closer to your body.it gives u leverage and takes it away from them... also curl ur wrist

    I think good technique such as wrist curling will give you the edge over someone who is stronger than you to a degree. I lost to my uncle who I know isn't as strong as me due to bad technique and basically just using my bicep/forearm instead of back/shoulder as well.
