17 year old athlete, 190lb 5'11" I want to really gain some definition and strength for my forearms but don't really know how to go about it. Any recommendations on good exercises to do or other methods?

  • Finger tip curls, and pretty much any exercise that bends your hands/wrist towards your forearm.

Behind the back wrist curls have always been a favorite of mine. Just hold a straight bar behind you with both hands, wrists faces away from you, and curls your wrists up towards your forearms, hold for a sec and release.


I'm partial to hammer curls with a dumbbell. If you've never done them, they're called hammer curls because they mimic the feel of grabbing a hammer. They're great for working the top of the forearm.
