You'd think, considering the way he climbed in Europe (vastly different than in the US, I know) that fast Freddy Rodriguez would have some beefier biceps.

Looking at this pic, I think even I could beat him in an arm wrestle.

This is why Freddy probably doesn't compete in arm wrestling contests but as to whether or not you could beat him... we'd have to see your guns first.

And we'll promise not to mock you and laugh... much.

I thought climbing used more of the forearm? But yeah, he is pretty scrawny. I've got biceps like flounders, they're wide from the side but they're about 3in wide. At least they're aero!
