Hello guys,
all the time we discuss certain things on this board, be it strength, technique or whatsoever. I really wonder who your favorite armwrestler is? Im aware that this is a tough call and propably impossible to say, but give it a try. I'm very curious.

After a long thought i think my Top 5 Armwreslters are:

John Brzenk
Cobra Rhodes
Taras Ivakin
Andreas Rundström
Devon Larrat

I could list a lot more being very close, but yea...its hard to decide.

Good choices!

Devon, John, Alexey, Rustam are my famous favourites. But I'm also a big fan of my team mates :)

After watching Pulling John I have a lot of respect for Brzenk and would say he's high on the list, but no one is more interesting to watch, in my opinion, than Allen Fisher. I remember seeing him on ESPN years back and his crazy-eyed, primal intensity has always lingered in my mind.

It depends... favorite to watch? Favorite as an individual? Especially gets hard when you're friends with SO many pullers personaly. Obviously, those that I'm the best friends with I like the best. :) as far as who I like best personally and on the table (friends don't count), Devon Larratt, Heidi Andersson, John Brzenk, are some of my favorites. Way to many to name though.

John Brzenk: well, because he's John Brzenk :grin: but seriously, I met him at the Arnolds and even though he's John Brzenk he was still happy to do a picture and sign an autograph for a fan

Devon Larratt: I met him at the Arnold and same thing as John; very nice guy and happy to answer questions, take pics, and sign autographs. The thing I like about Devon though is even though he's #1 he doesn't take himself too seriously. What other world champ is making videos like the Inglewood Jack and The Secret of the Canadian Goose :grin: ?

Arsen Lilliev: Never met him but \he's actually my favorite puller to watch because he's so explosive and he's the best toproller in the world and has short arms and small hands; gives me hope!
