How big do you forearms measure, just below the elbow? I have small wrists, and my forearms seem to grow so freakin slow as well. 12" just below the elbow. Wrists are 6 3/4 "

Not sure of the measurement but I'm cursed with tiny wrists....I hate em. And my forearms are only 13", but my biceps are 17" - go figure. Oh well if nothing else, having small wrists makes your upper arms look bigger.

Well I don't usually do 1 rep maxes very often for squats or deads, or even bench hardly at all- because of my tendonitis, but my last numbers were were around bench 300/squat 345/ dead 385-400 this is an estimate based on a max calculator.

I hate having tiny wrists, I'm gonna start blasting my forearms every workout until they grow :evillaugh

Writsts- 6.75"
Forearms- 11.75"

I've been trying to get them to grow but they respond about as slowly as my calves. :(

I do wrist curls with a barbell, hold the barbell standing up with arms extended, palms facing towards you and slowly let your fingers extend a little and curl them back up, pumps up the wrists. I also made a device that is a bar with a rope attached and a weight at the end. I hold my arms straight out and twist the handle until the rope wraps up around it and the weight is at the top, then go back down. You can do this with a variety of grips.

Same as you.

Just over 12 inch forearms and just over 6 inch wrists. You are probably bigger than me though in other parts like biceps and stuff.

HahnB- thank you. I've been meaning to either invest in a wrist curling device or make one myself (my gym doesn't have one) and I usually forget to do it. Muchas gracias for the reminder.

..small wrists only make your arms look bigger if you're at least 16-17 inches bi/tri. anything under that (ME) and they just make you look puny.

6.75 wrists
12.5 forearms

My forearms dont match my wrists at all. I have puny wrists, and can barely wear a watch. My forearms are quite large in comparison. I still look weak though...

If you are unhappy with your wrists/forearms do a bunch of wrist curls, reverse wrist curls, and hammercurls.

Heh not quite as big as you but here goes anyway.....

Wrist - 8"
forearm - 13.25"
upper arm - 17.5"
Chest - 49"

6'4" bodyfat somewhere around 20-25% right now though. Oddly enough it all hangs around my hips/abs/lower chest area. My back and arms/legs are pretty tight....toit like a tiger.

Wrists are 6.75, forearms are about 12, biceps are a little over 15 pumped. Having real thin bones, huge hands and fairly big upper arms is awesome! I can push tab (on the keyboard) with my right thumb and enter with the same pinky.

Aren't forearms and calves the most difficult muscle to add mass? Aren't these mainly fast twitch?

Forearms are hard for me, calves have always been large. They grow pretty easy too.
