so theres going lots of people there that look like they masterbated for 20 years straight, while the other arm is that of amy whinehouse. :haha and LOL at the masters class. ansd theres no way in hell im paying 20 to arm wrestle. i did it free in highschool.
John (88slowmarro)- youve got a strong right arm so go do this. ;D
i wish i could have seen this earlier
i took second place in the 155-189 novice, got to meet alot of cool people and some of the former top world champions
Dammmmmmnnn. Not bad! Congrats!
yea sounded pretty crazy
there was some broken arms and torn legiments i’ve heard
yep, the guy Mike who lives down the road from me was the one that told me about it at the bar. He told me at 1am, he took home 2nd in the 190-220 class. His first match he broke some ones tendons in their arm. and another guy had a bone pop completly out, it was nuts
me and one of the top guys in the US, Bill Sinks
you wanna go piss off that guy? some of these guys had arms bigger than my body almost,lol
i pulled against some of the pros as a warm up and they were impressed
It’s going to be more than just arm muscle but the ability to twist/bend your wrist. I probably have near the highest bench/curl on this forum but I can’t arm wrestle worth shit.
Its a combination of overall forearm, bicep,tricep, full upper body and even leg strength, grip, technique and anticipating what your opponent is trying to do.
I can bench 320 and curl almost 200. Im 188lbs now, some of the guys in the 190-230lb open bench in the 600s :wow
600s probably with a shirt given their weight. But, impressive none the less.
arm wrestling hurts my elbow and shoulder joints. ouch! lil frame i have. :sad
u shoulda came up man! it was a good time
