Arm Wrestling

Why is he allowed to use his entire body like that? It doesn't seem like a fair fight to me at all. He starts off in a jerking motion that throws off his opponent right away and that's hard to come back from when they are startled like that and already more than halfway down.

I don't know much about arm wrestling so I don't think I can really comment on this. However, it does not seem like a fair fight from what I'm seeing without knowing really anything about the sport.  


The truth is "Arm Wrestling" has very little to do with the muscles in the arms.  Biceps and triceps are for lifting, it's the "pushing" muscles that do the work in this motion.  Such as the deltoids in the shoulder, the pectorals in the chest and more muscles in the back.


You can test this yourself, put your arm into the position then rotate it backwards and forwards like your arm wrestling for a while.  You'll notice it's not your arms then get tired.

Thanks for the information. Very informative.
