    You said something about your forearms getting extremely sore etc. I was thinking and mine dont really get that sore etc. Do you let the bar roll down to the tips of your fingertips on each rep?

    Are you talking about direct forearm work or curls?

    For forearms work I sometimes use that tecnique when doing wrist curls etc. to get some extra stimulation having to grip it hard with my fingers, but usually I just put it in my palms, grip it hard, and lift. That goes for pretty much everything.

    for forearms, I use a piece of wood dowel, about 1" around, and a foot long. Drill a hole in the middle - put a 4' piece of rope through and tie it taught enough that the knot wont slip back through. The other end I make a slip knot, and attach it to one side of a small dumbell. Load other side of dumbell with weight.

    Roll up, Roll down, rinse, repeat. It's about as direct on forearms that I need.
