i have bitch forearms.
wrist rollers and some dead lifting helps
Seconded I like the wrist roller
Heavy hammer curls and heavy shrugs is what I was told
Rows, deadlifts, forearm curls, hammer curls, wrist rolls, shrugs, batting practice, normal curls, pull ups ect
reverse grip curls work pretty well.
mine have grown a good amount considering how much the rest of my body has grown...
heavy DLs probably are responsible for making my mid-forearm and wrists thicker... forearm grow is probably from pullups/rows/pushdowns
That just about covers it.
I find that heavy hammers, wrist curls, and deads/rows work the best.
If you ever decide to get into it... Rock-climbing is an AMAZING forearm workout.
I had Deadlifts, Pulldowns, Hammer Curls, Rows, and Shrugs in my routine for quite a while...my forearms wouldn't budge. I added pullups to my routine and my forearms grew a quarter inch. That was the only difference.
I think you have to shock it with new exercises. But make sure you got the basics as suggested.
grip doesn't carry over to forearm size
anything where high reps/long term usage is used
I had the same forearm problem, so I tried one of these and it really helped:
Don't ever use straps when you train and your forearms will grow along with grip strength.
+ 1 vote for that. Plus removing your thumb from pulling motions.
using a fat bar or axle...
Anything that involves wrist movement/stablization will work your forearms.. Nothing has worked my forearms and grip as hard as going to a climbing gym.
mass - wristrollers. strength id say bending nails lol
anybody that uses those Tyler Grips posted awhile back actually see any *growth* from them?
pull ups and chin ups really work my forearms
