    never have and never will touch straps. My grip is strong, just my forearms suck balls

    usually do them 2-3 times a week, and have a hands on job with lots of lifting and gripping shit

    15" forearms are damn good. What are your arms again?
    Forearms measured with the arms straight?

    I should have been the one to start this thread. 12 1/4" here.:wtc:

    nah is that how you measure forearms? Mine are measured like this flexed in the pic

    arms are 18 1/4

    It's like my extensors are somewhat developed, but my flexors (the girth) is non-existant

    i never work mine directly and i think they are in proportion to my arms. i guess it's just genetic.

    then again, my arms are pretty small too.. so it's probably too early to tell.

    and timber, you also have very small wrist so 12 3/4 inch forearms isn't near as bad as it sounds. My wrist measure at 7 3/4-8 inches

    Casey Viator I believe had around 16" forearms when measured straight.:eek3:
    15" bent is still good IMO. Even flexed with arms bent mine's still only get to 13 1/2".
    And going by that pic alone, I'm definitely right about your forearm.

    Some people lie about their height, their age, or their weight. SteveO lies about having diabetes so that he can eat all day

    man that's weird, because in your pics it looks fine and matches your upper arm. Straight arm measurement was a shitty 14 inches flat. A couple weeks ago a girl commented on how my forearm is unusually small to my upper arm, talk about a heart breaker :wtc:

    gotta do what it takes. Actually in my earlier days my blood sugar was very unstable so it's not necessarily a lie, just exaggerated

    Not to belabor a point.... where do you measure your wrist?
    Between the bump and your hand, before the bump or over the bump?
    Between the bump and my hand, on my left arm, the wrist measures less than 6 1/4".

    Hmmm... anyone know of any powerlifters that have a light bone structure. I'm just curious if trying to lift heavy (at times) for someone like me is why I always have tons of injuries. Or.... its just age. :(

    My bone structure is small too. I have 6.5" wrists and 11.25" forearms. Lifting heavy ass weights seem to take a toll on me as well.
