injure elbow ARM WRESTLING with buds ? any arm wrestlers here ?
yeah it sucks that since ive gotten bigger seems all my buddies (we like to party)are always making me arm wrestle . i usually win 5 out of 6 matches so there always making me do this and if you argue that your afraid to hurt yourself and not be able to lift for a week they just mock you and say jokes like guys do .
i for example watched a new guy to our crowd (whos actually kinda big& is much taller than the rest of us)beat a couple of guys arm wrestling the other night when we had a party . well , of course they made me wrestle him and i won . the shitty part is this , he is left handed and we are all right . i beat him fairly easily with the right and then he had his ego hurt so wanted redemption with his left . i have been expieriencing slight joint discomfort in my left elbow and wearing a tight spandex arm brace a lot for it when training , etc . well i knew better but in fact like a dummy i said ok sounds cool and we wrestled lefty , MISTAKE !
we went at it hard for a few seconds and i suddenly felt like if i didnt give up i might really hurt my arm so i just gave . now ever since it has been killing me . it feels good enough to train CAREFULLY but it still sucks . bottom line is ill not wrestle left for a long , long time . hell im sitting it out next manly chest outing/beating session at one of our parties .
who here has this sort of a problem ? and what do you recommmend to strenthen these tendons specifically for arm wrestling ?
