    Hello,

    I am trying to develop forearm strength and size. I have tiny wrists and forearms and it drives me nuts. What can I do?

    Read the S&P FAQ. There a section with links to some good threads about grip and forearm strength.

    Start training all aspects of hand/wrist strength:

    Wrist: Levering, Wrist curls
    Pinch/Thumb: Pinch plates, block weights
    Crush: grippers
    Support: thickbars, time holds with heavy barbell,


    Check out The GripBoard

    Read the S/P FAQ and its grip links. There are some very good threads linked there.

    Turkish get-ups with an Olympic bar work my hands/wrists/forearms/shoulders to death. Right now I'm up to 3 x 5 per side with the bar + 5 lbs.

    You can build some size and strength to a certain degree. Something that I've found about forearms and they are like calve muscles. They are sometimes stuborn and are hard to get to grow because of your genetics. If your genetics are prone to small forearms they're not going to get much bigger.

    Don't let me discourage you from trying, by all means work on them they might just stuborn and grow like crazy. Good Luck
