    I was naturally blessed with stick-type fore-arms. I have been able to build them a bit over the last few years by doing wrist curls and reverse barbell curls.

    Does anyone know of any effective exercises to help build this?

    Thanks

    train your forearms in ways they're not used to, specifically radial/ulnar flexion and pronation/supination exercises

    if you sit down and hold a straight bar and put your wrists on your knees and raise your hands, you can do this palms up and palms down.

    bouldering works really well.

    i've got pretty small forearms as well, i just do wrist curls and reverse wrist curls and have seen improvement just from that alone. i dont do much else primarily for forearms besides that.

    Taking the plates on and off the bench to the rack is a good forearm workout:bigthumb:

    Take newspapers and crumple them up with just your hands. That will build stronger forearms and wrists.

    over there, no here
    while your arm is resting on the table. the key is to try not to swing the arm around.

    also, towel chins, practical shit like carrying cement, hammering..
    or, pinch grip a couple reams of paper, the weight on the rope thing, and forearm curls, reverse forearm curls, rubber bands across fingers and spread hands out repeatedly, etc..
