Re: Why were many old time boxers so scrawny looking
Doing Olympic lifts with proper technique will add to power, strength and coordination.
Sprinters, footballers, clued up boxers all do compound movements.
Compound movements are nothing but beneficial, squats, deads, bench will build all round strength.
Doing reps and reps of an isolation exercise like curls isn't going to help you much no.
Also arm wrestling is very technical and some people have far more natural aptitude for it than others.
