There are wristwrestling competitions in Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. These tournaments are the only wristwrestling ones in the United States, run by 1 man. Armwrestling is a world-wide sport, and common weight classes are 154 lbs, 165 lbs, 176 lbs, 189 lbs., 198 lbs., 209 lbs, 220 lbs, and usually 221+ lbs. Sometimes it's 232+ lbs or 240+ lbs. Most tournaments won't have all these weight classes, most will be like 154, 176, 198, 220, 221+ but it depends on the tournament.

Average weight for 5'5 inches tall?

The ideal weight for a man who is exactly 5 feet tall is 106 pounds. For every additional inch above 5 feet, add 6 pounds. To determine whether you have a small, medium or large frame, measure your wrist. If your wrist measures exactly 7 inches, you have a medium frame and you do not need to adjust your ideal weight. If your wrist is smaller than 7 inches, you have a small frame and should subtract 10 percent from your ideal weight. If your wrist is larger than 7 inches, you have a small frame and should add 10 percent to your ideal weight.

What exercises work on wrists?

> Lifting weights help strengthen your arm you will start to also feel it in your wrist Here's what I use: Use about 5 feet of rope to tie a weight to the middle of a 1" diameter wooden rod about 18" long. Hold the rod in both hands about chest high, and wind the rope onto the rod to lift the weight. Then unwind to lower the weight. Choose the weight, reps, and sets to fit your workout routine. You can also do wrist curls: hold a dumbell in one hand. Rest your forearm on a bench with the palm up and raise and lower the weight using just your wrist. Repeat with the palm down. Again, choose the weight, reps, and sets to fit your routine.
