3 Tips for Building Big Forearms
For many lifters, the Forearms end up lagging behind in development.
forearm development here…
The reasons vary, but could be any of the following…
Maybe you’ve relied on straps too much in your training and as a result your forearms just aren’t challenged.
Maybe you’ve been doing the same handful of exercises all the time and need a change.
Or maybe you get locked into doing the same old “light weights for lots of reps” approach, because either that’s what you were told to do, or it used to work before so you just kept on doing.
Regardless of the cause, here are 3 things you can start doing in order to get bigger forearms.
1. Start Training for Strength
Maybe the problem is that your forearms are on the weaker side.
Try bumping up the weights and setting yourself a goal for hitting a specific strength mark in your forearm training.
This will force you to change up your approach and can result in improved forearm development.
2. Start Training More Movements
Your forearms are capable of a LOT of different movement patterns.
Unfortunately most lifters only train a couple of these patterns.
This neglect of key motions can be a BIG contributor to stalled forearm gains.
And once you start plugging these new movements back in, you’ll start seeing growth again.
3. Think More Wrist
It does no good to have a weak, brittle, fragile set of wrists. The wrists NEED to be trained hard and completely, too.
Training the wrists for both strength and volume will built those sick serpent-like sinews that run alongside the bones in your forearms.
When those wrist postural muscles get built up, that’s when your forearms really POP and start to look truly FIERCE.
So, are you ready to build some bigger forearms?
If so, you need to check out my new Workout of the Month: Fierce Forearms.
If doing High Volume forearm work was all that was needed, then EVERYBODY would have big, bulbous forearms.
You’ve got to attack the forearms the right way in order to see sustained growth.
Don’t use the caveman approach and think the harder you work in the gym and the more time you spend there, the bigger your forearms will get.
For best results, you want to train the forearms like you would the rest of your body.
This means different angles with different loads, rep speeds, and other variables…
And that’s what my Fierce Forearms workout is all about <= Grab your copy right now.
All the best in your training.
Bat speed, long ball power, and bat control are three aspects of batting over which you can have better command with increased forearm strength.
In order to train your forearms to turn them into bat thrashing and ball flattening power generators, you’ve got to hit them from a variety of angles.
