    Yeah, my wrist is around 7.5 inches I think, haven't measured in a little while. But anyway, I'm trying to make them a little more (in circumfrence).

    What would you suggest, do I need to bulk up all together to gain bulk there? Is it only a genetic thing? I am about 160-165 lbs depending on when I weigh myself.

    thanks.

    7.5 is pretty big, and it's mainly genetic

    you cant really make your wrists bigger. Check the grip thread in the archives.

    my wrist is 5.5" or 6" depending on where you measure it. I sure as hell hope I can add some mass there because my wrists make me look like one of those starving african kids.

    I hated my skinny wrists so much a while back, but after lifting for a while and getting some decent development in my forearms and arms, skinny wrists make your arm look bigger and more ripped (my experience)

    I like them now ...

    I just measured my wrist, and with a closed fist it's right at 7.5". I think my grandpa's wrist is ~9".

    Forearms get bigger wrists do not unless you're still growing.

    you're wrist will get bigger if you are bulking, thus because of fat.

    where are you supposed to measure the wrist, right where it meets the hand? or before that bone part that sticks out.
