At the last championship of Ukraine in the category up to 100 kg Ayder Alidinov from Crimea took part. Ayder traditionally showed a high level of pulling and predictably became the absolute champion in his weight category. Once again, spectators and fans of arm-wrestling celebrated composure, concentration and calmness at the table of this athlete. ()
During the last competitive season, Ayder took part in almost all major starts - the national championship, the European championship and the World championship. But despite the busy season, Ayder did not take long breaks and continued to develop:
"After the World championship I had a rest period, it lasted about a week. After I started training, I took light, preparatory training for about a month. Then I slowly began to develop in the training process, it took one more month. This can be called my off-season".
Ayder began preparations for the championship of Ukraine and for the new season in advance, as the professional believes:
"It took about two months to prepare for the Ukrainian championship. During this period, I almost reached the phase of overtraining, but the experience of the past years helped me. I changed the load of workouts and even cut their number in a week's cycle. I tried to keep good shape well, and it is not only about physical component, but about many other important factors. Speaking about my own assessment, I always believe that I can do better. At the time of the competition my weight was 96 kg".
As the athlete said, physical training is only a part and there are other important factors. One of these factors is the ability to correctly prepare for their potential rivals technically, by studying their pulling style.
