Two-time World Arm Wrestling champion Devon Larratt may be the best in the game, but what happens when you put him up against Game of Thrones’s beast of a man, “The Mountain?”
Well, it turns out “The Mountain” loses. That’s right; Europe’s strongest man, at 6-foot-9 and 400 pounds lost to Devon Larratt, 6-foot-5, and 225 pounds.
How is this possible? It all boils down to a simple technique. When arm wrestling an opponent, the key to winning is to optimize your positioning to activate the strongest muscles in your arm and upper body. You also want to get the advantage from the moment the ref tells you to go.
To see how Larratt used this technique to beat “The Mountain,” watch the above video.
