    Getting bigger fingers and wrists?

    Is there any sort of exercises I can do to fatten/bulk up my fingers and the width of my wrist, the part where bracelets would sit.

    A wealthy family member of mine passed away and passed on a bunch of jewelry from rings to bracelets, and even the smallest rings are too big to fit my fingers because my fingerjoints are wider than the finger around them.

    Same thing with my wrists. I can never find watches in stores that fit me because my wrist are so skinny..I can wrap my thumb and index finger around my wrist and have them touch(given I have long fingers...) but still.

    Small bones runs on my dads side of the family, even though he's a big and ripped.

    How can I make my fingers wider and my wrists wider, like right at the base of my hands?

    Yeah I know it's not the usual questions that get posted on here, but I have no need for other body building questions. I have been sculpting the rest of my body for the past 2 years. My fingers and wrist are the only thing I don't know how to work on.

    what youre trying to do is grow the bones in your hand and wrist and thats not going to happen. the only way youre going to increase the size of your fingers and wrists is if you get so fat that you start getting fat hands

    Hm so should I focus on bulking up by eating more calories, possibly using a weight gainer? Though how should I adjust my workout so this doesn't throw my body shape out of wack? I realize it's possible to bulk up and stay nice and toned, but how do I do this exactly? I figure if I gain weight my fingers and wrist will get fatter, but I figure out what to do with my workouts to make me stay toned, but keep the weight gaining.

    Any tips?

    thats not going to work. For the most part, your hand size is your hand size.

    your hands do have muscles in them but they arent going to grow really at all, especially on your wrist and fingers because your wrist is pretty much just bone and skin, and the same goes for your fingers/joints. In order to make your hands fat youd have to be obese... the only way youre going to make your hands big enough to fit new watches and stuff is if your hands start to look like this

    im talking like obese... you can always imprve grip strength and that might have a positive impact on some parts of your hands but for the most part youre not going to get your hands to get bigger

    For some reason I don't believe that I need to be obese for that..

    To give you an idea, I am very skinny, under 4% bodyfat. My six pack abs were visible after only 2 weeks, every other day, of working my abs, this was from a flat abs.

    You're telling me that if the fat levels in my body increase, I am going to start gaining on all parts of my body, besides my wrist and fingers? But somehow, once I reach the 'obese' line, my fingers magically become fat? That's impossible.. of course my fingers and wrist are going to grow as fat levels rise in my body and I begin to bulk? It only makes sense? Right?

    Don't listen to those newbies.. What's the defination of body building? It means overall the body not just the commen workout routine.. Even fingers and wrist..tendons.. Where ever u want to.. Try punching bag without gloves ! Punch it hard as much as u can. Each day thousand punches or more.. Make sure u get the oilment trearment after that.. Even ur knuckles are bleed like hell.. It doesn't matter at all ! It wil heal and get tougher than u thought! in 3 months time u will see the result !

    I heard just smashing your fingers with a hammer would achieve the same results but quicker?

    On some level, body hardening exercises can build the width of certain bone structures. Martial artists strike flat stones with their palms and knuckles at certain controlled distances and intensity to desensitize nerves in their hands, as well as also increase bone density, and as a result this results in a thickening of both bone mass and surrounding connective tissue. As for wrists though, i'd say stay the eff away from trying to use body hardening in that stuff. There are so many minute bones in the wrists that have to articulate appropriately, and messing with their size, density or containing connective tissue is just asking for arthritis.

    If you still want to exercise your way to better fitting jewelry though, grab two 50lb dumbells, throw the jewelry in a backpack, and run to the nearest jeweler and have them line/fit the rings and adjust the bracelets or watches.

    You know you can get rings reduced and links taken out of watches. If not just get on some human growth hormone if you want bigger fingers. Not serious
