i have always wondered this... what "weighs" more.... a pound of muscle, or a pound of fat. also.... in class today me and my friends decided to arm wrestle each other.... i beat this skinny kid with no problem and faced this other kid. he wasnt really "skinny" but definitely wasnt fat. i outweigh him prolly by a good 40 lbs.... and he kept up with me pretty good until he finally took me down..... how much of arm wrestlin is brute strength.... i go to the gym at least 4-5 times a week and all he does is play soccer.... so i was just curious... i kno its kinda unrelated but if someone can help... thanks
Arm wrestling is pretty dumb IMO. I have seen a lot of forearms snapped from it and I don't recommend it. If someone absolutely begs to arm wrestle me, I will but at first sign of stress in the bone, I let him or HER win. I'd rather lose and keep both arms in top shape than to hear the crack and cry for months.
Arm wrestling is leverage, bone thickness, muscle, and experience. Go compete in deadlilfting if you want to see how strong you and your soccer buddy are.

Man, I haven't arm wrestled in years. I used to beat everybody though.
Of course, that was in middle school and I went through my growth spurt before the rest of the class, but that's besides the point.
So what weighs more, a ton of feathers, or a ton of bricks?

Weightlifting sucks. I just like to lift heavy things.
