    Look like fuckin toothpics, theres no meat on the wrists. I've been doing overhand grip curls (preacher curls?) for the past few weeks, but is there anything better I can try?

    Your wrists aren't going to get bigger, but doing the stuff Ceaze listed will get your forearms up to speed.

    same here. When the muscles of the forearm grow you won't care. It will look fine.

    2 dbols of test!

    Or crunking, deads, static holds, and pretty much whatever grip work you can do with what you have at your gym/home.

    a 15" forearm will look better on a 6.5" wrist than it will on a 7.5" wrist

    depends on the person, but for me it works better than any gym exercise cuz small muscle group exercises bore me
