Armwrestler from Russia


#1

this guy is fuckin huge... 60cm upper arms, 57cm forearms... huge


#2

He’s like a bear… dam he’s huge!


#3

I’d like to know what some of his lifts are. Monstrous.


#4

that guys hella big.


#5

6’1" 308 lbs
23.5" arms 22.5" forearms
HO…LY…SHIT


#6

Anyone else think that he looked surprisingly like MattDamon at 00:38?


#7

Here’s a (poorly?) translated version of his website: http://translate.google.com/translate?prev=&hl=sv&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ciplenkov.ru&sl=ru&tl=en

I just noticed, his last name is translated as chicken, that’s the last thing I’d call him.

What most amazed me was how fast he got rocked by John Brzenk.

I mean, based off the video this is a guy who has an incredible amount of strength…and in a related video Brzenk put him down in about five seconds.

Arm wrestlers rule. We need more of those guys around here.

Denis wants a rematch now from what I’ve read. Don’t know that’s going to happen.

It’s funny how small Denis makes John look, even though John’s pretty damn big.

I don’t know anything about arm wrestling, but I think that guy is better with his left hand. The results show he placed 1st in the left and 2nd to Brzenk in the right. I don’t know. Does that make a difference if he’s a lefty? Do they do something like combine your right and left hand scores?


#11

damn, he got a nice set of hyoooge guns


#12

Apparently his bench is 270 kg, and he’s a converted strongman to arm-wrestler. I think he’s a lefty, and apparently his left arm is much stronger than his right.

2 separate comps. Soem guys only pull one arm, some do both.

LOL—I just started training for AW a few months ago. All of the top armwrestlers are bad ass.

Brzenk is the man.

One of my training partners is 3rd int he world left–he went up against Denis a few months ago in Poland, and lost.

Ya I was going to comment on how huge his hands looked in some of those clips, like big ass bear paws, which goes well with his giant fucking arms.
