Arm wrestling has been and continues to be a favorite activity of kids, athletes, and adults looking to show off their strength and assert their dominance.
If you’ve ever gotten dominated in an arm wrestling match (and to be honest, who hasn’t), you’re probably wondering what you can do to improve arm wrestling strength.
Well, you’ve come to the right place!
Here are 3 exercises to improve arm wrestling strength so that you don’t have to hang your head in shame the next time your drunk friend Steve starts challenging everyone to an arm wrestling match.
#1 Hammer Curls
Any arm wrestler worth his salt has beefy forearms, biceps, and triceps.
As such, you must strengthen these if you want to have a chance at outmuscling the competition. The dumbbell hammer curl is a great 3-in-1 exercise that builds the forearms, biceps and grip -- all the more so if you use fat gripz
#2 Triceps Rope Pushdown
To beef up those triceps, there’s no better movement than the triceps pushdown. The utilization of the rope attachment allows for a greater range of motion and the increased diameter of the rope compared to the straight bar also helps build forearm and grip strength.
#3 Hand Grippers
Having strong arms isn’t the only thing that’s important for arm wrestling glory, you also need to have an iron grip -- the kind that can crush the palm of any ordinary human being.
In addition to using dumbbells, fat gripz, towel hangs, and farmer’s carries to build up your grip strength, you can also invest in a pair of hand grippers.
Bonus: Watch Over the Top
Nothing gets the testosterone flowing like a great 80s action flick, and when it comes to arm wrestling, there’s no greater movie than Over the Top.
Note how Sylvester Stallone’s character uses the top roll to defeat his opponent, and see if you can implement the same tactic in your future arm wrestling matches!
