Intense and Effective Forearm Workout

I always have and always will be a fan of forearm workouts. quite simply because they are the hardest area to build muscle on my body. In fact, most people will struggle building there forearm muscles, which lead me to share 8 ways to build forearms. But before all of that there was a forearm workout that I would do quite often to ante up in my workouts to build my forearms. (Which I’ve recently started to perform again too).

I like to call this the Army workout.

Why?

Because it feels like you are training to be in the army when you perform it

Reverse Cable Curls

Sets: 3
Reps: 8-12 (Increase the weight after each set)
Rest: 3 minute rest between each set

Wrist Rollers

Sets: 3
Reps: 8-12 (Increase the weight after each set)
Rest: 3 minute rest between each set

Seated One Arm Dumbbell Palms Up Wrist Curls

Sets: 3

Reps: 8-12 (Increase the weight after each set)

Rest: 3 minute rest between each set

You’ll look at this and think ‘ This is nothing new’. Which is mostly true. But the challenge comes when you increase the weights after each set. When you do you will feel pain and see results because of it.

As usual, it’s all about finding unique ways to build muscle, which often means finding small tweaks in common exercises and trying different unique exercises for functional strength. Consider this workout a tweak to the norm.
