The armed struggle is popular among many people. There are even certain people who have competed in it, though not in the most suitable places for sports, like bars. Nowadays, the Russian armed struggle is developing actively.

What is Arm Wrestling

Arm Wrestling is a type of sport that takes place between two opponents on a table. This modern sport started in the US in the mid-1960s and by 1977, the World Armwrestling Federation was created.

Hands-on the table! From the history of wrestling

Arm wrestling is a sport where the strength of the joints and ligaments in the hands are what matter most. As for muscles, muscle mass does play a role, though the technique is probably more important. In competitions, the full weight of an athlete doesn’t make much of a difference; it’s all about how well you do strategically. In their training, arm wrestlers will focus on exercises to develop arm strength and gripping ability.

Arm wrestling is something that requires proper technique and a strong arm. During the fight, the angle of inclination for the arm will constantly change. To train for this, you need to practice various techniques with different grips and devices before going into a real fight.

Fighting Technique

One of the most important things you should do when you find yourself in a fight is take the correct stance. This will give you the best chance of winning, even if you’re fighting someone who has more experience than you. And knowing your stance will only help matters.

How to stand correctly

With the left hand, we firmly grasp the pin which cannot be lowered. The athletes’ hands are placed so that the grip is exactly in the middle. When capturing, it is forbidden to cover your opponent’s fingers with your hand. When you place your opponent’s upper arm on your right elbow you must keep them parallel to the ground. When pinning, it is not allowed to move or break your opponent’s lower leg. As a result of that movement, it is necessary to give a difficult position to their legs.

Wrestling involves grappling with opponents on their side, by moving to the opponent’s side and either throwing the opponent off balance and hooking one of the opponent’s legs with one’s arm or grabbing hold of a hand, hip, or leg for initial control.

The hook grip is a wrestling technique where you begin by turning the opponent’s hand towards yourself, with your own palm facing your face. In this position, the wrestler will be fighting by using their bicep and collateral ligament muscles. The pressure comes from the side or diagonally. In this case, the working arm needs to be brought forward.

When fighting on horseback, try to use the biggest lever possible. To do so, try to grab your opponent’s arm as high up as you can. This will create a long lever that provides stability and leverage by putting your opponent’s arm under pressure.

An Effective Training Program

Before you engage in any arm wrestling training, it’s important to get your body in the right shape. Otherwise, you’ll quickly tire out and end up losing. To do this, all you’ll need to do is some basic exercises for the biceps, forearm, triceps, latissimus dorsi and deltoid muscles of the shoulders.
