can anybody give me advice on building up my forearms?
should i concentrate on them separately from my bicep workout or should i just carry on with my normal arm workouts,ive always had pretty thin forearms.any advice gratefull.
Wrist curls, reverse curls, gripping exercises (grippers - Ivanko, Iron Minds, etc.), pulling exercises - deadlifts, bent rows, lat pulls.
I use an Ivanko gripper 2X a week at home sitting in front of the TV.
If you have an arm day, depending upon how much bis you do, I'd replace a bi exercise with reverse curls and add in a couple of sets of wrist curls.
Give chalk a chance.

thanks for the advice guys.
I've just been doing wrist curls and reverse wrist curls with dumbbells at the end of the workout. I think you're supposed to do a bit more reps when working the forearms too because they are made of smaller muscles... Don't quote me on this though.
