Three years ago at #ArnoldassicArmwrestlingChampionship 2015 at 154lbs. Was lucky enough to went 2-2 and get like 5th place at #xsportnews bracket. Somehow three years later I'm going at it again in bigger class with even bigger competition, weigh ins are in 2weeks!! /// три года назад мой первый Арнольд в категории 70кг. По борьбе вышел 2-2 и стал 5ым по сетке,но это даже не призовое место,так что стал никаким но хоть проиграл чемпионам мира тогда так что не обидно)))))) в этом году буду пробовать свои силы в более тяжелой категории как по весу так и по количеству лошадиных сил которые прибудут на этом турнире. Взвешивание уже через две недели ровно!#armwrestling #arnoldclassic2018 #arnoldclassic #roadtoarnoldclassic #roadtoarnoldclassic2018 #acac2018 #nutrition #supplements #natfit #армрестлинг #армспорт #армфайт #арнольдклассик #дороганаарнольдклассик #russianinusa #russianathlete #ironreligiongym #orlando #orlandoarmwrestling
