Iron Muscle is Zangief's V-Skill in Street Fighter V.[1]

Input
Street Fighter V Punch holdArcade-Button-MPunch+Sf3 kick medium

Description Edit

IronMuscle

Executed by pressing Medium Punch and Medium Kick simultaneously, Zangief flexes his muscles as his body turns red. By pressing forward during his V-Skill, Zangief performs the Muscle Walk. During this move, Zangief closes the distance on the opponent by slowly walking forward. If Medium Punch and Medium Kick are released from the walk, Zangief flexes his muscles and hits the opponent if they're in range.

TacticsEdit

MuscleWalk

The Iron Muscle serves as both an attack and a defense at the same time. During this move, Zangief can absorb two attacks, which leaves him with recoverable health. If anticipating an attack from the opponent, Zangeif can use his V-Skill to neutralize their move(s) and respond with an attack of his own. Additionally, Zangief can cancel into his Spinning Piledriver after hitting the opponent with his attack during V-Skill. It is also a way to handle characters who specialize in zoning. Rather than blocking a fireball to sacrifice chip damage, Zangief can use Iron Muscle to absorb the projectile to gain recoverable grey life.
