The rules of Armwrestling

Strength, Skill and just as importantly - fairplay

There's probably not a man alive who hasn't planted his elbows on a table for a bit of muscle tussle with his mate to prove who's the daddy. And equally, there probably aren't many women who haven't challenged their man to a spot of arm wrestling to see if he's as brawny as he says he is. It's all good fun and not bad for settling a good-natured score.
