Most people arm wrestling foolishly use their biceps to crush the opponent. This is wrong, as it is a relatively small and weak muscle. Instead of using the arm, try using your back and shoulders to force your opponent down.
Wrapping your thumb is a very simple move which can grant you a lot of power over your contestant. Here’s how to do it:
1. Wrap your hand as if you were about to punch someone.
2. Instead of having your thumb on the outside, move it “under” your fingers, so you can only see the knuckles behind your fingers.
3. This is wrapping your thumb. Practice doing it with a friend to see what I mean.
