    Guy Drives motorcycle and grew huge forearms?

    I know this one guy who is 5ft 9 and bulked up to 210lbs and was a black belt in karate and did not have too much body fat, I think maybe 9 or 10 or less. Anyways after he got a stomach virus he lost 40lbs by staying in the hospital for 2 months + the recovery time at home which obviously contributed to even more loss. That happened about 6months before I meet him and since then hes stayed at 170 but he still looks built and looks more then 170. Anyway The thing is he said, he has been driving his motorcycle for over a year now and his forearms are huge, The mass right before his wrist is actually bigger then his wrist. Im starting to think, can that much vibration over long periods of time cause the foreamrs to grow that huge compared to lifting weights such as forearm curls? Btw he has a 45 min commute from his house to the training center and he does that 5 days a week.

    I used to get Algrebra Tutoring and he was the teacher there. I dont go there anymore it was just for a couple of weeks in the summer.

    It has very little to do with the motorcycle. Sure gripping for that long helps somewhat, but most likely this guy just had great forearm genetics.

    No doubt he used the forearm stabilization muscles when he picked the bike up and ran with it.

    Maybe his personal trainer goes by the name of Lucien.

    it could be from the bike.. especially if he rides dirt.. i used to get hell sore forearms from riding when i was **** at it... but if he's getting sore arms from his road bike he's riding it wrong. the idea is to put as little input into the steering as possible once its leant over so that the front suspension can absorb the shocks and it doesnt go thru your body to the back wheel.. people who death grip the bars end up on the road ... tell him to chill out on the handlebar strangling or he'll highside

    naww, its defenitely because he goes to a secret underground gym at nights, along with all the other guys that claim they dont work out but yet look huge. its a secret though so keep it hush-hush
    im kidding....seriously though i hate the geneticly gifted, the ones who dont go to the gym and destroy their muscles but yet look like theve been goin for years...
    oh well

    I've noticed that working a muscle frequently tends to increase the size and strength to a certain limit. Not as fast as weight lifting, but it has an effect. I got a good start with lats and forearms because I used to just do loads of chinups.
