Forearm Equipment

I was wondering what kind of equipment would build my forearms? This IronMind Twist Yo Wrist

a powerball, normal wrist roller, or this

How about:

A stick + rope + weight.

I do wrist curls with it. I don’t really like the roller excercise as much. Can get like 60 pounds on it.

what materials did you make that wrist roller with?

The handle is actually part of a bowflex (not mine), but you could use a piece of PVC or wooden dowel rod which is the other piece. Some nylon laundry rope, a small carbiners clip, a small eyebolt, washer and nut, a large washer with a small hole and a one inch flat head wood screw with glue.

Like I say I don’t really like the roller type movements, but it’s great for wrist curls. I do em palms up and down siting on a bench with my hands hanging off my knees. This will be poo pooed by some, but it works fine for me at the end of a back workout when the forearms are already pumped from all the gripping.

Heavy Deadlifts built my forearms up huge. Holding onto a lot of weight will do it. Even shrugs seen to get them going once you put a few plates on the bar.

I find that Deadlifts/Ez Bar preacher curls work my forearms sufficiently enough to never have to do specific work on the forearm.

But thats just me.
