They're not a veteran competitive arm wrestlers, but the Diesel Crew's Jim Smith and his partner Jedd Johnson aren't just into grip stuff - they like to share their knowledge and enthusiasm with others, and arm wrestlers seem to like what they are hearing.
It takes a lot of table time to develop the kind of arm-wrestling skills displayed by Simon Berriochoa (left) and Bill Brzenk (right), shown pulling at the 2005 Crystal Bay tournament, but it should go without saying that grip strength and arm wrestling go together like ham and eggs.
