    Man I got Wooped by an old man in Arm Wrestling!!

    I was at the bar the other night and I had a few guys that wanted to arm wrestle me. I told all of them I was never really good at it. I won the first four guys. I didnt slam any of them I just pried their arms down. Now the fifth guy was a old burly looking redneck. He slammed me down!!! I tried it again and he did the same thing.

    What is the trick to arm wrestling??? I hardly beat the other guys that was really smaller than me. There has to be a trick to it other wise these scrawny guys wouldnt be good at it.

    Well, I'm no arm wrestler, but I have learned NEVER to underestimate "old men"...

    They may not be all cut up and defined, but there are some darn strong old dudes out there!

    Arm wrestling is 90% technique. I guarantee you most pro women armwrestlers could slam the vast majority of men. As a sidenote, I hate it when people want to armwrestle in a bar.

    Its hard for me to explain, but all the people I know who arm wrestle just for fun, not competition, but win tell me this; Always lock your wrist forward by gettin the first jump (kinda like that over the top BS). Also have your shoulder locked forward. If feels kind of funny, but if you get in that proper position, you can tell it will take a lot of force to bring you down. The combination of rolling the wrist with the locked shoulder, snapping both at the start, seem to give you the best advantage atleast what I have seen.
