The forearms don’t always get the love they deserve. There are a lot of muscle groups that we think of when it comes to strength and endurance and unfortunately, the forearms just don’t make the list. But they are actually a pretty important part of your quest for arm strength. Here are some forearm exercises that will help you build that strength in short amount of time.
Backwards Cable Curl
Okay, the backwards cable curl is our first contender. This is a great exercise to do on a pulley machine but you want to make sure that you have a D-handle attached, as that is the best grip handle for this exercise. Grab the handle with one hand and step away from the machine, with your back facing the machine, and take a step so that your right leg is in front of the left (if you are using your left on the cable) or vice versa. Curl the handle but stop before you reach the point where your elbow is pointing in front of you.
