    IMO Try 2 exercises one with higher reps (10-15) and one with lower reps with heavy weight. Can't go wrong with that. 2-4 sets for each would probably be good and 2-3 days a week would be fine.

    My first thought was "ok, what do you deadlift?" and then I saw you're 15... IMHO, just deadlift, don't worry about doing the isolation stuff too soon, it's not going to help in the long term.

    yes, small muscles that get taxed with everything you should be doing: deads, squats ( yes squats tax forearms ), benching, over head pressing, rows,.... Anything where you hold or move a heavy weight will use your forearms.

    Dude, you're 15! everything is lagging. You start that iso crap now and you'll never hit 200lbs. I busting your balls w/ the intent to help you understand, bigger bodypart are not built by iso movements!
    Now matter how you feel about yourself, there will always be someone bigger, stronger, tougher, so the only question is, what are you gonna do about it?

    your forearms aren't lagging, everything else is still behind.
