Dmitry Trubin took part in the tournament Arnold Classic Armwrestling Challenge, which was held in Columbus at the beginning of the month. Dmitry shares his impressions and results. ()
Why did you decide to pull at Arnold? Was this tournament planned in advance?
- This Arnold Classic for me was not planned, because I wanted to rest more and let the body recover completely. But the whole story clung me, haters wrote a lot of superfluous things. When my coach invited me to go to Arnold Classic, it was about two months before the tournament, I agreed and I made the task of recovering as quickly as possible. I started a lot of work; thanks to the integrated approach - the use of massage, physiotherapy, sports nutrition and competent training, it was possible to recover by 80-90%, but the trauma still has its effect – it aches. I agreed to go to Arnold Classic for the reason that I knew that Michael Todd and Dave Chaffee would come there. For me, the opportunity to pull with Dave again is fundamental, so I went there.
You did not look as big as at the Zloty Tur. Have you changed your workouts?
- I revised all the training process completely, it was compressed and completely different from my preparation for Vendetta with Dave. Then the main direction of the training was to improve the indicators of physical strength and muscle mass, and now the main goal is the restoration and strengthening of weaknesses, I do not chase for weight now.
Tell us about the fight, evaluate your the results of the team. Are you satisfied?
- The struggle went well, it was over, some of the nuances did not work, but there were reasons for that. I'm happy with our team, all the guys performed well, all the fellows.
