In mid-February one of the most important events in the world arm wrestling has passed - the championship of the Republic of Kazakhstan, which has one of the strongest teams in the world. ()
Magzhan Shamiev, an athlete from the "Shardara armsport" club, became one of the winners of the championship.
As it turned out, Magzhan has no breaks in his training period, he is constantly training and giving a little rest only after the most significant starts:
"I train all year round. I give myself a break only a week after the Worlds and Professional World Cup. Since these tournaments are the most important for me, I am completely immersed in the training process and give all of me in training. I train only specialized for arm wrestling. I have neither time nor strength for something else".
At the championship of Kazakhstan Magzhan was in good shape and showed excellent results:
"Championship of the Republic of Kazakhstan took place in our home town. I trained five times a week and spent in the gym for five hours. I really wanted to show a good fight and a good result. I did it. In the category up to 80 kg, I took the first place without any problems. The second was my teammate, two-time world champion Shynbolat Raikhanov. I also fought in the open weight class, in which the first three places were taken by representatives of our club. Medet Kuttymuratov became a champion, Professional World Cup medalist in 2016.
