Daniel Mosier: Armwrestling has  taken me around the world... # Armwrestling #

... to amazing places and allowed me to meet so many awesome people! I invite you to the interview! ()

Congratulations Daniel Mosier,

My name is Sean Hancock. I am the U.S. representative for PAL and URPA. Over the past few years I have gotten to know a special athlete very well. His name is "The Ironman" Daniel Mosier. I would like for you to know more about him. Daniel recently placed 2nd in the 2019 Zloty Tur 86 kg division and won first place in the 95 kg division as well as overall right hand champion at the prestigious Mississippi State championship tournament in U.S.A. November 14th 2020. I realized there is much that you do not know about this elite athlete. I asked him a few questions so you could get to know him better.

Hi Dan, will you introduce yourself please?

Hey everyone! My name is Daniel “IronMan” Mosier. I love competition and Armwrestling has taken me around the world to amazing places and allowed me to meet so many awesome people!

Besides Armwrestling, what do you enjoy?

Besides Armwrestling, I enjoy growing the world’s hottest peppers, making hot sauce, and traveling to cool destinations with my wife Lisa.

What is life like for you during a regular week away from competitions?

I work 5 and 6 days a week as a General Foreman over Cranes, Rigging and Ironwork. I’ve spent most of my life doing demolition, welding, fabrication and iron working, so that, along with always staying in shape from working out, is where the name “Iron Man Mosier” came from. Coworkers started calling me that around 10 years ago and it’s well known throughout Armwrestling as well as around all the Chemical plants and refineries we work in.

What is your training schedule like?

Work is year round and it takes up most of my days , so I have to make time for training. I find ways to train while I’m working since I handle heavy rigging and iron working tools all day. I make it a point to incorporate some type of exercise into every task I work on and constantly work my hand, wrist, and forearm.

Normal days consist of getting up at 4:00 am, taking the dog out and getting ready for work. Start work at 6:00 am and get off at 4:30 to head home. Between yard work, taking care of 70+ hot pepper plants, making hot sauce, and training every evening, it seems like there is never enough time in the day!

I have several different machines in my garage that I use to build strength, speed, and endurance . It’s easy for me to get in a killer training session every day in my spare time since I have all my training equipment at home. I believe that a huge variety of training gear has helped me be successful in the sport of Armwrestling because every competitor is different therefore your training strategy and technique used should always change as well.

When and how did you get into the sport of armwrestling?

I started Armwrestling in Ohio back in late 2011.

A friend talked me into competing at the Ohio State Championship just for fun. I won the Novice division over others that were actually good Armwrestlers so I wanted to see if I could learn more! I was totally addicted. At the time I had no idea it was a real sport and had never even seen a real Armwrestling table. I met Andrew “Cobra” Rhodes that day, and was fortunate to start training with him on weekends. He eventually got me in contact with Craig Tullier and I was able to travel to Louisiana to train with Craig.

In high school my friends and I used to Armwrestle to see who was the strongest but I never imagined that 20 years later it would become the single greatest sport I’ve ever known!

I absolutely love Armwrestling because ANYONE can be good at it if you put in the effort to train hard. It doesn’t matter how big or small, short or tall. You don’t have to look like a bodybuilder , be successful, or be wealthy to be a elite Armwrestler.

Who is your biggest supporter/fan?

I don’t have any family here in Louisiana, but my wife Lisa has a wonderful family that treats me like their own. My wife is my biggest fan, supporter , and coach when it comes time for a tournament. She is an amazing woman and keeps me on the straight and narrow when it comes to dieting , training, and cutting weight for a contest!

What are the biggest struggles you have had with the sport and what are some of your greatest accomplishments thus far?

Over the 8 years I’ve been involved in Armwrestling, I’ve had lots of ups and downs.

1. Started pulling in Ohio.

2. Sold my house, property, and equipment and moved to Louisiana to train for Armwrestling.

I won a 1200cc Harley Custom Sportster at a Armwrestling tournament in Paducah KY

Competed in the ArmWars competition in Cologne Germany at FIBO POWER EXPO

Won the 2018 Arnold Classic Armwrestling Championship

Won the 2019 National Armwrestling League Championship

Travelled to Sidney Australia and defeated the 100kg Australian National Champion in a 6 round SuperMatch

Was soooo close to winning the 2019 Zloty Tur World Cup! Placed second

And most recently, I won the overall right hand champion golden bulldog award at the 2020 Mississippi state championship tournament

Last question Dan. I believe you are the #1 ranked right hand armwrestler in the U.S.. If invited, would you compete in the 95kg top 8 and what more do you want from the sport?

I would be honored if I were chosen to compete in the 95kg top 8. I would train harder than ever before to win that title for myself and my country.

With the grace of God, I want to be one of the best Armwrestlers on the planet !

Thank you "Ironman" Mosier for your time to let us get to know you better and for your dedication to the sport of Arm Wrestling...

Thank you all for watching my journey , I will NEVER forget where I came from!

The Ironman...

Thank you Boom Hancock
