    That is pretty strange. I have pretty strong shoulders and 15" forearms but for some reason I am not that great at arm wrestling. I lose to guys that are not nearly as strong as me... Could it be because I have shorter arms and they have considerably more leverage on me?

    i left out lots of technique, brute strength arm wrestlers end up with broken arms

    I have over 19 inch arms and suck dick at arm wrestling, so whatever I'm doing - don't do.

    i understand that, i listed the one that is used in arm wrestling, shoulder flexion
     
  22. wasn't it uncle john who broke his arm arm wrestling? he's got some huge ass arms too! i've always been a really shitty arm wrestler. but when i started working on my RC i became MUCH better. however i don't arm wrestle anymore because it really does not take much torque to break something.

    Side note: I smoked some marine in an arm wrestle a few days ago at the bar.

    He was only in the reserves though :mamoru:
