I have been researching this underground/not so underground anymore because there are a bajillion threads online about it program and it appears that you must pick 3 exercises for forearms. Is this correct?
Dante knows his shit and all, but this seems so stupid. Forearms are useless for training with three exercises IMO. I can't be the only one who feels this way.
The usual exercises (to my understanding) are not things like wrist curls/extensions, but rather reverse curls, hammer curls, pinwheels, etc. If you feel compelled not to train your forearms, then by all means don't.
Test it for a bit, watch how you progress and if it brings you nothing, then cut the programm and try something else. Thats what training is. Training. No more and no less. To question something is good but the system stays the same
Its good that there are so many different kinds of training out there, so you have the possibility to change things for your purpose but if you try something and it works, stay at this and be happy.
Last. Who says that stupid things arent that good?
a) Pinwheels, Hammer Curls etc. train the brachialis and brachioradialis a lot as well. I need to train those directly via some reverse-grip or hammer grip work or else I get forearm pain on heavy double overhand pulls and such... So I do such movements whether I'm using DC or not. I find Pinwheels especially nice now that I'm dabbling in powerlifting. My bench grip-width is comparatively narrow and elbows are usually tucked almost all the way... I think that strong elbow flexors definitely help with stabilizing and elbow/arm health here...
b) There are already 2 big DC threads.
c) We all know that the OP can hardly be taken seriously, judging from his posting history...
d) Why the hell do people care who don't even do DC?
A.) Never even heard of pinwheels. If it's a forearm isolation exercise I'd laugh if I saw you doing them. Even if you are twice my size,
B.) This is a Bodybuilding website. Why state the obvious. "There are already two DC threads already." I'm aware, but I wanted to begin a new one. Sue Me
C.) Really? Posting history? So because I post in the Get a Life section, I can't train too?
D.) Don't you think you are being a bit arrogant here? You are on the Internet. You know NOTHING about whom you speak too. I could be Dante hinself for all you know. I am going to begin DC despite what others might say. Bodybuiling is about finding what works for you. Wouldn't you agree?
