The other day, Igor Mazurenko stopped by Andrei Pushkar and Oleg Zhokh to check how the strength indicators of both athletes have changed since his last visit. Three months ago, the two world’s top armwrestlers tested the strength of their back pressure on the fingers and the brachial muscle. While Armbets TV is preparing a special video report about a new Mazurenko challenge for the future participants of the November Vendetta All Stars # 50, we learned some interesting details. ()
During the first test, which took place in May and which has been featured in the Armbets News program on Youtube, Oleg Zhokh outstripped Andrei Pushkar on power indicators.
This time, in the sports club "Coliseum", in the city of Ternopil, Ukraine, a lot of titled spectators gathered to personally witness the athletes’ level of preparation for the main event of the year in professional arm wrestling. Among them were famous Ukrainian armwrestler and blogger Ilya Izman, world champions Anton Kolyazin and Oleg Petrenko (Andrey Pushkar’s student), master of sports in arm-wrestling Vladislav Mostovoi, multiple silver medalist of the “Zloty Tur” Professional World Cup Vadim Stetsyuk and special guest - Oleg Krivyi, an Absolute European Champion in bodybuilding and the winner of the Arnold Classic in 2016 and 2017 in his weight category.
In a word, the star elite of the Ukrainian armwrestling and bodybuilding gathered at “Coliseum” that day.
Oleg and Andrey started to warm up with a 40 kg weight. When the athletes reached 80 kilograms, a discussion arose about the correctness of the exercise execution. Athletes and spectators began to discuss how to pull right. Igor Mazurenko made a remark to Andrei and Oleg, because, in his opinion, they pulled slightly to the side. In response to the remark, Oleg Zhokh noticed that Denis Tsyplenkov also pulled aside during his challenge, and did the exercise "not quite clean" as well. Oleg added, that if Denis would pull correctly, he would hardly have pulled such a weight. All present supported Oleg's criticism of Denis Tsyplenkov.
