    Can anyone recommend a nice device to help build up my forearms just to use around the house?

    drive real fast with your hand out the window and gradually extend...return to previous position and repeat

    edit: I"ll give ya real advice. Buy some of the those grippers and squeeze the hell out of them. Also, people take a short pole and wrap rope around it with a weight and then roll it up and then roll it back down.

    thanks
    I realize it was a pretty stupid question but if you saw how skinny my forearms are you'd realize that it wouldn't take much to build them up a bit

    I've seen the weight with a rope before, I guess I'll give that a shot

    Pin pulls
    bench press
    deadlifts

    Squezing the bar is key

    Hold arms perpendicular to your body and roll the thing up and down

    there's no reason to hold it perpendicular, it's just going to fatigue your shoulders before your forearms.

    hang your arms over a ledge/table/whatever so just your hands are off the edge with your forearms, elbows resting on the table..and roll that thing up
