The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Search for forearms and MonStar in the Advanced Search function. He's our most avid forearm dude.

    chromium6-
    Forearms are a tough bodypart to grow man. I have struggled with trying to gain size and development in my lower arms for a long time now. It takes time, for me more time than other muscle groups. The biggest muscle in your forearm is your brachioradialis, its the big muscle that you really feel hurting in hammer and reverse curls. Fully developing this muscle with seriously add some size to your forearms. I would add reverse curls and/or hammer curls if you havnt already. Also maybe incorporate some basic wrist curls or reverse wrist curls and maybe some direct grip work.. like one-arm hangs from the chin-bar. Time yourself and try and work up to a few minutes hanging with just one arm. Dont overdo it though! Your forearms are relatively small and only need a few intense total sets to spur growth. Good luck!

    Yeah bro. There is a hammer curl grip barbell, but I dont recommend it too much. I personally think that basic dumbbell hammer curls and basic standing reverse barbell curls are your best bet. I bumped up an old forearm thread for you.



    ... Nice slow reps really keeping steady tension on your lower arms.
