    you guys have any tips on stretching the arms, or sites to check out to learn different stretches? i started lifting with freeweights a couple months ago and i want to stretch out my arm muscles a bit prior to/post lifting because i think that'll be like.. better for them. i'm a runner so my streatching knowlege is primarily leg based.
    second question: good exercises for forearm strength/handgrip strength? are those squeezing thingies pretty much the way to go?

    :o total noob

    the sqeezing grip helps yeah. Also I forget what its called, but I made one myself. Take like a cylendrical piece of smooth wood, tie a long thin rope to it, and attach the rope to a 5 pound free weight(the length of the rope should be long enough that when you hold the stick out in front of you the weight ALMOST touches the floor). The exercise is to hold your arms completely straight out, without moving, roll the weight all the way to the top. Then roll the weight back down with control and repeat. Good look geting anymore than two your first time using:). Drums do wonders for my forearms

    if you can rip a crisp apple in half then you should be content with your grip, if you cant... do the rolly things mentioned the post above me.
