What Muscles Should You Train in Preparation for Arm Wrestling?

 

The consensus of opinion varies quite a bit, and we have included some of the most popular views.

CAWLToArms_JimBryanW_UConnTeamIt won’t take long for one to learn from an online search that there are two major camps when it comes to which muscles to train in order to be a superior arm wrestler.

One camp stresses the obvious: hands, forearms, biceps & triceps and deltoid muscles. The other camp advocates the best training for arm wrestling is to focus on the entire upper body muscles, including chest and stomach muscles. Some go further and talk about strengthening leg muscles as well.

Official CAWL To Arms Referee, Jim Bryan, recently worked with each of the CAWL To Arms teams to prepare them for the inaugural tournament. During their sessions, Jim emphasized “Arm wrestling is a combination of strength, leverage and technique. Competitors are only as strong as their weakest link. If their hand and wrist cannot support their

arm strength, applying too much power will cause the competitor to lose any hand and wrist advantage. Conversely, if the hand and wrist are superior, but the bicep and shoulder strength are lacking, you will probably be pinned while maintaining your strong hand position. It takes a combination of strength throughout the entire upper body to become successful. You can only apply as much pressure as your shoulder, arm, wrist and hand can support. Once the strength limit is exceeded, the form and technique fail and usually the competitor will be defeated.

There’s one thing, however, they all agree on. Not doing any training at all will most likely result in not only a loss, but a possible injury as well. Like all sports, the best conditioning is necessary to provide satisfactory results, especially a victory!
