      It seems like pronation is the one move that constantly has a place offensive,defence you name it I need to buy some better bands I've got quite a few but seems like it's hard to track progress. I think its Todd hutchings? That said to count steps back (so its stretched farther) for progress.   Pronation and rise are both in my training alot. What do yall think about holds in certain AW specific moves like riser holds etc do you think it replicates a match or is it something to avoid? Obviously still use sets/reps as well.

      Anything that can resist your palm being turned up (pronation) …that’s what I feel most when arm wrestling someone. And keeping your elbow in tight as you can. Once it separates…or as the gap increases you’re compromised. And obviously shoulder and elbow is going to benefit from table time. Bands are the best option if you can’t be a table trainer. IMO

      Thanks Tommy,  I made it up to roughly 420 bench range in early 2020 including a nice triple at 375. Then got real sick (probably early covid before tests were available), then tore my left bicep tendon off the bone trying to catch our new dog when he got out (half Great Dane, half Greyhound, big and fast). After surgery and recovery period on the arm depression had taken hold so it was about 16 months before I started training again in 2021. I'm 50lbs lighter now than when I was back up over 400lbs and all that time off took its toll. But trying to get back up to a reasonable level for a nearly 50yr old ex-athlete. 375 might be a good start, roughly 320 range right now as of last workout. - Aaron https://www.instagram.com/p/B6d5SHLAGmf/

      Today's workout: Ivanko Super gripper: Warming up (always the same)   4 TNS attempts (10,12) 180 lbs RGC getting closer 4 TNS reps (4,12) 120 lbs RGC SUPER CLOSE I can pretty much count them as reps but since I technically did not close them they count as attempts Switched to TNS completely with the ISG because I caught myself cheating while doing no sets. I accidentally kept turning my no set closes into assisted closes. So now I won't allow myself to touch it with my other hand. I have to change my frequency grippers 3x a week is just too much it is interfering with my recovery despite Wednesday being a light session. Wednesday sessions also aren't productive at all I can't really train properly because I am still recovering from Monday.     Dynamic thumb work (pony clamp) 3x10 8 elastic bands (added an additional one for a total of 8 Imtug 2  pinch closes 3x10   Recovery:  Extensor bands 3x reps to failure 2x holds to failure

      @Climber028I agree and my current program does have lots of hand wrist.. it's hard to explain that I do know how to armwresltle from the internet   I have armwresltle quite a few amateurs that were literally over twice my weight etc held them dead center of the table easily.  although I have to be careful to not get them hurt also I've found a couple of amateurs with natural tequnique like pronation and cupping one dude even resembles a press lol.   so maybe I'm no good who knows.
