Forearm workout with dumbbells


But before we get into the workout, let us look at some important pointers that we must remember:


a) Do not work on your forearms every day. They will end up getting sore and tired. 3-4 days a week will get you the perfect results.


b) Quality is more important than quantity but that does not mean that you will completely ignore the number of repetitions.


c) Your forearms are a part of almost all the arms exercises that you do. However, they still do not get the attention that they deserve. You must do some exercises that directly work on this part of your arms.


d) Forearms exercises are not tough and complex. They are simple and doable. You must, therefore, not compromise on the weights. Go as high as you can.


e) You can work on your forearms even when you are not at the gym. There are many old school techniques to get the work done.
