    I built my own Mas Wrestling board a few years ago and me and the guys break it out sometimes if weve had a few beers and we have a dispute to settle about whos stronger. This may be a dumb question, but am I asking for a back injury by pulling from a completely bent over position like you would in the sport of Mas Wrestling?

    I have no idea what "Mas Wrestling" is. I'm not a big fan of touching men anyway.

    The advantage of Mas Wrestling is that you're probably only going to touch a man's hands. You put your feet against a board between you and grab a wooden dowel. Then you attempt to pull your opponent over the board while keeping the dowel in your hands.

    Here's Larry Wheels doing it:

    Alright, maybe you could end up with a dude landing on top of you.

    There isnt actually any touching, youre both sitting facing each other with your feet on a board between you, trying to pull a stick out of your opponents hands (or pull your opponent over the board). I found it to be like a long range-of-motion deadlift with some twisting and jerking... I guess Im answering my own question here...
