Strong Wrists, You Won't Have a Strong Toproll
toproll is an advanced move that requires not only significant training
time, but also extremely strong wrists. One of the most important
parts of the toproll is being able to torque your opponent's wrist
so that he cannot hook you and is forced to toproll with you.
no "traditional" weightlifting exercises specifically
train the rotational strength of the wrist that is so vital to a
successful - and strong - toproll. But there is one exercise that
is absolutely perfect for rotational strength in the wrist: Wrist
Wrist rotations have long been a favorite exercise for Armwrestlers.
Wrist rotations build the rotational strength in the wrist that
is needed to start a devastating toproll!
To perform wrist rotations with the Heavy
Handle dumbbell , put the weight on Shaft B(top shaft) and rest
your fore-arm on your knee. The exercise can be done by either rotating
the weight to your outside, inside, or both to get an unbelievable
forearm pump!! Don't start too heavy!! You can also perform this
exercise with a sledge hammer, but the Heavy Handle dumbbell (with
the two-inch handle) makes this exercise far more effective. This
is because it simulates the feel, thickness, and angle of resistance
that you will encounter in a real arm wrestling match.
