    Biceps vs. Triceps: Stronger Muscle?

    Which one is generally the stronger muscle?

    The reason I'm asking is me and a co-worker were talking about arm wrestling and he said he uses his tricep to push their arm down instead of pulling it down. I've always pulled instead of shifting angles and pushing their arm.

    Maybe I'm just a retard, but which muscle is generally the stronger out of the two?

    Makes sense. I tried to get him to demonstrate, but he refused. He's a mechanic. And I live in Texas. I'm sure you can imagine.

    I remember seeing a guy a long time ago on ESPN (I think) using his tricep. He had a hairlip and he was a monster.

    Tri is stronger.

    Arm wrestle has a lot to do with hand and forearm strength.
