How To Be A Domanant Arm Wrestler
To be a dominant arm wrestler you need to play the psychological game. Get into people's minds and distract them so they cannot focus on the match and what they are doing in it.
One way of getting into your opponents mind is by saying or doing something that is distracting. Just before a contest match, say something positive or negative. Positive things can include things such as a joke or something silly. Negative things can include a complaint or something negative a competitor or referee is doing. Get your opponent to think that he either agrees or disagrees with what you are saying. If they are thinking of this, they are not thinking of the match.
Make sure that when saying something to distract your opponent, you stay focused yourself. Before each match, I like to decide and know which move I am going to use and mentally go through this move to rehearse it. If possible, I like to rehearse it both mentally and physically. Reheasing mentally can be done anywhere. To rehearse your move physically, I like to do this where I can’t be seen by anyone. I go through the exact motion of what I am going to do. This is also a good warm up for the muscles needed.
You don’t want to be changing your mind with what you are going to do at the last minute. You have to be committed to what you are going to do. Know what you are going to do and focus your attention on the start of the match.
Make your opponent think he is going to lose!
Some people have already lost a match before they have it. If you are not confident and think you are going to lose, you will. Be confident and think you are going to win and follow through with this.
Make your opponent think he is going to lose before the match happens. At many tournaments, you are able to talk to the competitors. Making him lose before the match starts can be done by talking about your win history or the biggest titles you have. You can talk about how hard you train and all the things you do to get better and to be strong. If a large number, talk about the amount of years you have been training.
Play the pyschological game to win!
