Pronation and non pullers

Recommended Posts

So something I’ve noticed and I’m curious what advanced pullers think. When I added in pronation work a couple times a week for a while it seems like the gap against non pullers widened considerably. Is this the one muscle that pullers are WAY ahead of non pullers because you don’t really target it with conventional weights? It seems like if you just want to arm wrestle causually or every once in a while some rotation/pronation work with a towel or strap can give you a big advantage. I was typically doing 3 or so sets 2xwk with a belt or towel for 10-15 reps nothing crazy and adding weight when I could. Thoughts?

I've noticed the same thing. But be careful with it, you're doing it right, 15-30 reps, just a lot of volume work. Very intense pronation-supination work hurt my wrist and it's hurting for 2 and a half years now. But I'm not even an amateur armwrestler, so take my words with a grain of salt.

How much work would you do in a session and how many times a week did you do?

I wouldnt classify myself as an elite puller. But dabbling in it for 7 years now, i can say that any moderate amount of table time with good pullers results in easy wins over non pullers. From what i can gather, this will hold 100% true with regards to guys your weight who do not pull, and in many cases, even non pullers up to and sometimes over 100lbs or heavier. If you are familiar with a table and understand the basics, it will take someone SUPER strong, or a lot bigger, to beat you given they have no table experience.
