    assuming you are doing heavy compound exercises your forearms should get a fair amount of indirect work

    What's that one thing with the bar and the rope with the weight at the bottom? And you wind it up and down. That thing should work your wrists even tho it's a bitch.

    That would work forearms. The "wrist" doesn't actually exist.

    i would say its the worst thing you can do
    the most crucial exercises in order of importance:
    1. wrists
    2. squats
    3. deadlifts
    4. bench press

    I usually workout the wrists every day or at least every second day. Particularly if I am single.

    After a heavy set of wrist lifts, I like to couple it with ankle presses.

    If you mean forearms - no they're not necessary to work specifically.

    but, if you've got issues like forearm tendinitis during curls - it's a good idea, as you've likely got a form of inbalance.

    I call them roll ups :dunno: I hate that thing but do it once in a while. Mostly feel it in my shoulders while I try to keep my arms parallel to the ground.
