Igor Mazurenko about the device, which will soon become necessary in our sport. ()
In most power sports (e.g. powerlifting) it’s easy to determine the level of athlete training. The competitor's level determines his position in the starting lists. Those, who in the weight category have a higher score, is the best.
It is even possible to predict before the competition the athlete's future result on the basis of scales in the starting approaches and in the auxiliary exercises.
"Technical" sports, where strength training is used as an auxiliary (for example, athletics), you can also plan the result based on training results.
But in armwrestling all is not so simple and clear!

Igor Mazurenko: In 2014, one of the pullers asked the question: "How can I objectively test and compare my strength results with the results of the leading athletes?"
Armrestling is a special kind of sport, because there is no restriction on the time of the fight. The duel at the table lasts as long as it lasts, sometimes even 7-10 minutes. Therefore, the athlete's endurance is just as important as his strength.
What is endurance?
Among other things, endurance is determined by the amount of muscle fibers. As is known, there are two types of fibers - glycolytic and oxidizing. But that is not all!
Our muscles work at different angles and in changing conditions.
