ok so this kid that is skinnier than I am beat me in arm wrestling. I have at least 20-25lb on him but he still beat me. I was a little drunk but he was more drunk, and I lifted arms today but I dought that had anything to do with it. What can I do to train to be good at arm wrestling? I want to beat him next time.

im 6'4 160 lbs.only a junior and i beat all the strong kids in my school in armwrestling including this dude nicknamed "strongman".lol.anyways strength obviously is only a small part of winning.all these big senior stocky football players get pissed when the tall skinny junior kicks their asses in arm wrestling.without strenght you still have a chance.w/o form you will not win period.

The fact that he beat you doesnt nessecarily mean he's stronger then you, but possibly just has a lot better technique. Theres alot more technique to arm wrestlingthen you'd think...

Wouldn't people with longer forearms (from wrist to elbow) have more advantage when it comes to arm wrestling because of the leverage?

Without the use of proper leverage, I don't think strength means much.
