    I've noticed more growth in my forearms since i've started using a grip trainer.

    It completely isolates the forearm muscles.

    Squeeze a tennis ball. That's what I had to do back in my powerlifting days 'cause my DL was stronger than my grip.

    Only downside with training forearms specifically is that if your forearms aren't already really strong, it can get in the way of certain exercises like preacher curls. I've noticed that since I started doing a lot more back work (heavy shrugs, rows) and focused biceps/shoulder work (dumbbell raises and preacher curls), that my forearms have started getting significantly bigger.

    I focused on forearms one day about a month ago and then ended up giving myself a wicket case of ulnar-splints the next day doing preacher curls. I had to lay off the preacher curls and revamp my whole workout routine for a good 2-3 weeks to let my forearms recover.

    Annoying as hell.

    Bench: 305lb
    Deadlift: 415lb
    Dip: bodyweight + 230lb
    Pull-up: bodyweight x2

    "There's a lot of 5'11 200-225 lbs guys with 10-12% body fat on the Internet. In reality, their "10-12%" body fat is more like 15% body fat or more. Everyone thinks they're on their way to single digit body fat as soon as they see a blurry four-pack in the right lighting. Your final body weight at 5-6% will be a lot less than what you think."
