We remember third-grade lunch hour as a free-for-all scream fest. It was also a time to prove your strength to your peers during rousing matches of arm wrestling. Remember the callow figures circling, young arms flexing, and heads diving above closed fists? Where are they now? Possibly at the Grand Canyon State Games: Arm Wrestling Championship. Eric Wolfe of AZ Arms, the training center hosting the competition, says technique can beat strength by a practiced hook or top roll move. Whoa. That sounds pretty intense. Maybe the competitors arent just a bunch of insecure beefcakes trying to purge their adolescent angst onstage after all.
