Arm Wrestling

Tandem Leaning: Tandem Stretching & Strengthening

  • Read the introduction.
  • Grab your tandem partner's hand in the traditional arm wrestling hold.
  • Lean into their hand as they lean into yours.
  • Take their hand downward as they continue to lean into your hand.
  • Keep leaning into their hand as they take your hand up and toward the ground.
  • The difference here is that the goal is not only to take their hand down, but to have your hand taken down as well. You are getting strengthened in one direction and resistance stretched in the other. It's a win-win game.
