    I noticed from your bodyspace stats that you can squat double your weight. Is leg strength required for arm-wrestling? Do many elite arm-wrestlers have good over all strength such as yourself?

    Leg strength is important too..arm wrestling also need lower part body strength to hold.

    Right, decided to dust off my pair of CoC grippers that I brought years ago and give this whole arm wrestling thing a go!

    I remember when I first brought them, I thought they must have labeled them wrong as I couldn't even close the No.1 - and I thought I was pretty strong! I do have small hands and wrists but it was not excuse, I just wasn't strong enough.

    I like having something to train for and arm wrestling sounds good fun, I have to say that haven't lost an arm wrestle since I was 14 but it would be good to have a go against some competition, I am very sure that I would get whooped by anyone with and experience but I think it will be fun!

    I'm going to start adding arm wrestling focused movements into my schedule and start training with my grippers on a regular basis.

    With the grippers, I've heard that high repetition is the key, I can just about close the No.2 now if I'm lucky and can do maybe 12 reps with a No.1 if I hold it right, I find it a lot easier upside-down

    I'm thinking I should buy a 'trainer' gripper that I can pick up whenever and bash out say 30 or 40 reps? Would this be a good idea? Hand and wrist strength are my weakest areas so I feel it's here I need to focus initially.

    Any advice you could give me for hands and wrists would be great! Reps sent in advance

    legs is definately not a priority but it does add too upper body strength

    Absolutely...but also know that Travis doesnt have to worry about getting into a specific weight class either..lol...he sits at 242lbs...if I train my legs to what I should, I would be out of my competitive weight classes...Its a hard balance and sacrifice in my training to neglect legs but it is what most light weights have to do....

    Hi Buddy,

    It would be great to hear from you - I'm really keen to learn more - I've checked out a few armwrestling sites.

    Still working the grippers, can close the No.2 upside down about 5 or 6 times, can close it once properly the right way up. Have been doing super-sets with the No.1 & No.2 - have definately seen a bit of progress.

    Did a few sets of reverse curls yesterday super-setted with heavy lat pull-downs - really made my forearms BURN

    Can you recommend any more 'grip-toys'? I really do think that the hand / wrist is my big weak point and the area I'm keen to focus on. My grippers now take pride of place on my desk in the office - glad that I work for myself!

    Any further exercises for wrist, fingers, hands that you could recommend?

    hey man...most of the grip exercises i do are listed above...definatley hit ropes though...rope training is some of the best workouts for armwrestling you can do...very under-rated in my opinion..even just hanging a thick rope in a tree and climbing it everyday a few times would be awesome

    you can also check out gripboard.com....very good info on that site as well

    Awesome thread...reps to you.

    i will probably (because anything can change ) never get into competitive arm wrestling of any kind...but it definitely doesnt hurt to use these strategies to beat out my buddies in arm wrestling

    Great thread! I got curious and did some research on grip strength last night.

    I tried a quick workout (Finger pushups, chinup bar and towel hangs, and tennis ball squeezes) too, and I'm definately feeling it in my forearms this morning!

    Benifits of POWERPULLING

    As I have stated before, your hand and wrist take a lot of abuse in this sport and can fatigue very easily if you're not careful. If you would like to generate more power in a static position, i.e. losing position, centre table position, then power pulling is for you. It eliminates the pressure on your hand and wrist and allows you to train harder and longer in these positions without reaching failure.

    In order to do this you must set up with your training partner (at the table) with your wrist on wrist...not grabbing each others hand like normal Arm-Wrestling. Just make a fist with your hand and lock wrists together....This usually puts you into a hook position....

    In this position you have the ability to pull hard without fatiguing/injurying your hand and wrist. You can build a lot of stopping power using this method and I believe it should be implemented into your training schedule if you want to develop a great stopping move against your opponent.

    very sorry to hear!...i could definatley be the lack of knowledge in the sport..but really, what sport isnt dangerous if you dont know what your doing...thats why I stay away from bar table pulling or "coffee table championships" as we sometimes call it...stick with a professional table with 2 qualified referees who know what to look for and prevent injuries..

    good luck on your recovery

    TIP #20 - Effective Strap Use

    Some people never see the straps in a tournement and get confused when the referee asks if you want them high or low. Meaning the positioning of the strap on the back of your wrist. This is something that should absolutley be practiced in training...You lose your mental game when you get confused with simple questions like high or low...This gives your opponent an upper hand when he answers fast and with confidence.

    When the staps are placed and the referee lets your hands go, immidiatley drive your elbow to the top of the pad keeping your wrist high and straight, then in the same motion, drag your arm back to centre pad, still with your hand and wrist high and straight.

    If you complete this move first, you will have an advantage on your opponent and his/her hand should be dropped slightly...

    I personally love the straps but maybe because I find myself in them a lot.

    A lot of cool info about arm wrestling. I am currious about the types of fractures that can happen in this sport.
