BB Row: 185 x 12

Damn Big Hands, mystery grip, claims a HG 400 No Set, NEEDS straps to DL 570.

And here is the big question:

What move selon-vous should person A use against person, B, C, D, E

What should B use against A, C, D, E


I have been meaning to post this somewhere for a LONG time so, do not be offended if I post it on other boards even after any much anticipated replies.

the lifts and weight you posted does not mean that the guy lifting the heaver weight will beat the lighter lifting guys i suggest that you match up two against two winner taking on the fith guy and then the second runner up then in the excitement of the match you will see what moves work best and work on them . then you will see what is the weak link and fix it

I am pretty sure a lot of those lifts have just about nothing to do with armwrestling.....also I would have no idea who would win outta any of you based on the information you have given. I would have to pull all of you to know what your weaknesses are.
