For the 2022 Arnold Classic Armlifting Championships and all future contests, Armlifting USA has approved the use of the Arm Assassin 3" x 4" Saxon Bar. This is NOT meant to supplant the 3" Sorinex Saxon Bar. It is simply an alternative to it. Both bars have almost identical dimensions. We welcome Lucas Raymond and his company to Armlifting USA.
Along with other notables in the strongman world, Odd Haugen was big on the Rolling Thunder from day 1, and this led to the inaugural IronMind Rolling Thunder World Championships in 2000, which kicked off Haugen’s Beauty and the Beast competition. Rolling Thunder contests also flourished below the world championships level, and in 2010 Armlifting was born when a Russian armwrestling promoter asked IronMind for permission to organize grip contests featuring the Rolling Thunder, dubbing the competitions Armlifting. So, armlifting is the Russian name for grip contests that began with the Rolling Thunder, and have since come to include such other grip world staples as the Apollon’s Axle Double Overhand Deadlift and CoC Silver Bullet Hold. The mission of Armlifting USA is to increase the participation in Armlifting in the United States.
