Very soon a sports festival Arnold Classic will be held. Can Vazgen Soghoyan take Arnold gold for the third time? ()
In the context of the conversation about preparatory period out-of-competition American lightweight Vazgen Soghoyan said that he is going for the best achievements to the sport festival Arnold Classic, which will be held March 2-5 in Columbus, Ohio, USA, and shared some plans for the future.
Vazgen, do you think that the off-season exists in armwrestling?
- As in other sports, armwrestling has the off-season too. The athlete makes a calendar of competitions and, of course, for off-season/preparation period. During this period, he does light workouts, can afford to gain a few extra kilos, do not follow a strict diet, treat injuries and restore the body as a whole. As well as watching his personal life, this also helps in the psychological recovery from the stress of competition.
Do you have the off-season?
- I also have such period, but it is very short, because my calendar is very rich in different tournaments.
