The Biggest Supermatch in Australian Armwrestling History.

Posted by Ryan Bowen on

  The biggest matchup in Australian Armwrestling history is set to occur in March 2021 and wow what a match it will be. Australian national champion and rank 1 overall armwrestler Ryan the Milkman Scott will face the rapidly up and coming challenger in Lachlan the Anvil Adair. The reason this is such a big match is due to a few major factors. One, that none of Australia's best have had an opportunity to clash since March of 2019 and two, there is a genuine high tension between these two athletes. In March of 2020, these athletes were set to...

What it's like to climb and be delusional

Posted by Ryan Bowen on

I'm going to speak really genuinely in this article, as I feel that sharing this experience allows not only me to really reinforce my processes but allows readers to gleam more real insights into what it is to pursue elite armwrestling and making a genuine financially stable career of it.In 2013 I made the decision to pursue the elite level of armwrestling and to make it a paying career. I jumped immediately into that deep end, and when asked, I shared that goal without batting an eye lid. My words were often met with laughter.Laughter really has been a constant....

Learning how to armwrestle correctly and having great coordination at the table have nothing to do with the date on the calendar. If i would count most coordinated guys in the...

The future of armwrestling promotions

Posted by Ryan Bowen on

The future of armwrestling promotionsThe world has most certainly been tipped on its head in 2020 and with no promise of 2021 being a return to what we used to consider normal, the way the world promotes professional sports is changing.For the world of armwrestling this isn't such a bad thing because we are a speedboat among ocean liners and our ability to change directions quickly can be capitalised on.The first thing that will likely change, and, in my opinion needs to change, is long term athlete contracts. It is simply too difficult for major leagues to guarantee an athlete...

Toproll Vs Hook | The classic battle

Posted by Ryan Bowen on

It is the most pure balance of styles possible. Pronation vs wrist flexion, creating distance vs closing distance, hand vs arm, good vs evil, it has been called so many things, but at the end of the day the toproll vs the hook is the most classic battle you will see in professional armwrestling.What I find most fascinating about each of these styles is the culture that exists behind each of them. Firstly, toprollers. Known for their often long skinny arms, gangly fingers, and their unassuming physical appearance, these guys are the king's of crushing the ego of big framed...
