Every guy loves and wants to have a huge arm! You can always see people in the gym pumping their triceps and biceps. In the mad pursuit for a huge gun, way too many people neglect their forearms. It is time to put this message across for everyone to know:
You will NEVER have a complete pair of arms without targeted forearm training.
Forearms should be taken seriously as other bodyparts. I used to be one of those madly obsessed with getting a huge gun. I’ve never taken any forearm workouts seriously. But one day, my friend told me something that I thought was right. He said,
“Even if you have a 14 - 15 inch bicep, once you get your Tees on, the only thing people will probably notice is your forearms”.
Most of the trainees workout not to get into bodybuilding competitions, they workout and want to look like that workout. I’m definitely one of them. I want to look like I workout. It was then that I realised I had to work on my forearms.
Besides the fact that well developed forearms gives you a well-balanced looking arm, forearms are also important in strength training. They are involved in nearly every upper-body exercise you do! Your forearms are working everytime you flex your elbows or wrist, especially when performing heavy bicep curls.
They help you to grip barbells and dumbbells.
They assist you in pulling and pushing movements.
However, you might think that because of this, you do need to train your forearms seperately. Well, in my opinion, their extensive use is exactly the reason why we need we need to focus on them. Don’t let your forearms be the weakest link.
