Larry Wheels recently talked about how the gym saved him and changed his life, which is why he loves to be involved in multiple sports at the same time. One of his dearest interests currently is arm wrestling, and it has been his passion for the past few years as well. So, although it is safe to say that Larry is quite experienced already, he is always looking to improve. In order to do so, he needs to train often, which has become a normality for him. So, when Larry walked into his most recent arm wrestling practice, he thought it would be just another day. Unfortunately, during one practice match, Larry’s opponent suffered a gruesome arm injury.
Larry Wheels captured the entire arm wrestling match on video and shared it on his Instagram account. As the footage shows, it was clear that Larry was not pushing as hard as he could. Instead, the injury happened during a light coaching session. So Larry is in no way to blame for what happened, as the injury was so freakish that it couldn’t have been predicted at all.
As soon as his opponent got injured, Larry Wheels grabbed his head, unable to process everything that had happened. His opponent let out a scream of agony and walked off while holding his arm.
“*WARNING GRAPHIC* can someone please explain how this happened?” wrote Wheels.

These kinds of injuries have happened multiple times in arm wrestling, and they are most often caused by the technique used. In this case, Larry’s opponent seemed to have pushed his shoulder inward, hoping to generate more force. However, when Larry countered his push, it looked like the torsion of the forearm was too much for his bones to handle.
As of the time of this writing, the exact details regarding the injury have not been revealed. However, it is most likely that some bone in the arm snapped, potentially the Humerus. The treatment for the injury will also vary largely based on how severe it actually was.
Larry Wheels does not seem to have any special arm wrestling plans for his future, as he has been focused on bodybuilding at the moment. He hopes to make his debut in the Classic Physique division and has been preparing for it since he stopped using steroids. Now that he is only on TRT (Testosterone Replacement Therapy), Larry and his coach believe that he can be very successful in the mentioned division, and his physique updates definitely make it seem like that as well.
Larry Wheels recently had some problems due to Rhabdomyolysis, which put him at risk of kidney failure. Luckily, he has recovered well and has already put in some great workouts with Andrei Deiu and Breon Ansley. Larry now looks forward to the future, where he undoubtedly hopes to achieve some big things.
