Camille Leblanc-Bazinet and Dave Castro Armwrestle
Dave Gives Some Tips on Technique
Despite its name, armwrestling is not primarily about arm strength, but about positioning and using the entire body. After the Rogue vs. Again Faster Tahoe Throwdown, Camille Leblanc-Bazinet got a few armwrestling pointers from CrossFit's Director of Training, Dave Castro.
An armwrestler wants to keep the angle of his shoulders and arm constant, while widening the angle of his opponents' arm. Once he has achieved this stronger position, he should use his body to pull his opponent's arm onto the table.
