Hello everybody!

How I found this board...

I found it while searching the net for "forearm training" because I wanted to improve my armwrestling ability. Now I'm addicted to armwrestling and an every-day reader of the Gripboard.

I bought the Trainer, #1 and #2. Closed #1 2nd workout, it was a matter of technique. Only closed #2 around 10 times since I got it, because my hands need to be extremelly hot for me to achive this!

My routine...

Twice a week:

- armwrestling

- thick handle hammer or table curls (faillure w/ 22kg)

- wrist curls (around 2x30reps w/ 14kg and 1x8reps w/ 22kg)

- thick handle hammer or table curls (faillure w/ 22kg)

- other wrist moves

- grippers (#1 static holds, rep-out w/ Trainer)

My measurements... (just another way to track progress)

bodyweight 63Kg

forearm circunference (full extended) 32cm

wrist circunference 18cm

I want to thank you all for sharing such a valuable information for all of us...

Hi Hercules. Where are you from and what is your background in armwrestling? Ranking etc. There are a few armwrestlers on the board, myself included. Congratulations on closing the two. There are few armwrestlers I have seen close it, and I've given it to many pullers.

Thanks for the kind words, I'm already feeling at home...

Nice links JSallee, if you like armwrestling you could check this ones out: http://www.armwrestling.onweb.cx/ and http://www.armwrestling.com

Strongman - I've bent some nails(easy ones) but I fear for my wrist (I need it very much for armwrestling), I'll post a new topic on an idea that I've had that will probably interest you...later

CanadaCrush - I'm from Portugal, there's no armwrestling here, but I once went to tournament with the big ones from Europe, including Pascal Girard! Lost all matches :).Since that day I knew what armwrestling is all about....(needless to say all that day was spent asking questions). I wish I had the great Tony Senger to help me....

I hope I'll contribute to make this board even better!
