Browsing: Forearm exercises

This section contains detailed descriptions of all major exercises that focus on the forearm muscles,
including the wrist flexors and wrist extensors. Here you can find all the exercises you really need to develop massive forearms.
Forearm exercises generally fall into two categories: flexor and extensor movements. Variations of the wrist curl (where you curl the hands toward the insides of your forearms) primarily work the flexors, while reverse wrist curls (curling the backs of the hands toward the top of the forearms) primarily work the extensors. Although exceptional forearm development is largely genetic, certain exercises and techniques are necessary for maximal potential.
Training your forearms serve two main purposes: increasing strength in other exercises (such as the deadlift) and making your upper body more symmetrical.
