Bavarian Finger Wrestling

(Video Link)

Put on your lederhosen and jump into the arena. It's time for finger wrestling! This traditional Alpine sport puts two men on opposite sides of a table. Each holds on to a strap with a single finger -- the usually the middle -- and tries to haul the other onto the table:

Competitors subject themselves to an intense regime of finger training in the build up to a tournament, with some preferring to squeeze tennis balls or holding their own body weight with a single finger, some insist that a series of one-finger press ups is the best method of strengthening.
