    Use a thicker bar when Deadlifting, I've never done any direct work for forearms (aside from one of those grip things that I used in HS because I fidgeted a lot), and have been seeing a lot of progress from just this slight change up over 3 months

    cheers

    Are you compairing the importance of forearm isolation to your entire back? Most ppl would agree that forearm training is not a must and that forearms are trained reguraly in other work outs. As you get more advanced and want to start working on body symmetry then yes, you need to build your forearms.

    It also depends on your goals, do you want to build an impressive physique with massive forearms to go with your monster calves? Or are you asking whether or not you need to include 8 sets of forearms in a training day as part of your regular work out? If your not a serious and close to advanced bodybuilder once every two weeks will do just fine. Stay away from machines and your forearms will naturally get stronger!

    Depends. Some people have decent forearms to start with and they would probably grow just by lifting. Others may need to work them more directly to see development. One way I've heard to work forearms is to use a false grip (thumbs next to index fingers) on pulling motions.

    Ask Bruce Lee. He was one of the strongest people ever, especially for his size. He was known on focusing primarily on his grip strength and core, he believed those were the foundation of strength.

    He was a good martial artist and a philosopher, far from one of the strongest people ever.
