    Started doing reverse barbell curls about a year ago and it has developed my forearms something unbelievable aswell as my overall grip strength on all exercises.

    I definetely recommend training them twice a week..........gives a great look to your arm as a whole..........

    Your forearms get trained every day with pretty much every exercise. Every time you're holding a db/bb you're working your grip, and hence your forearms. Doing them more would just be overkill and would make them too sore to do other shit. I've never seen someone with small forearms and big upper arms, it's pretty much impossible to do that. So I don't think it's efficient to train forearms separately.

    Well, while I don't not not believe you , I'd still like to see that myself. So if you ever see a picture of something like that please post it. I mean, most pros don't really train forearms and they all got big ones. Ok how bout this, ever seen someone with small upper arms but big forearms? lol. Other than Popeye

    I have seen forearms in pics and in person that could/should be bigger. I just had a guy griping to me and telling me the other day he needs to start working his forearms.

    It's not too common, but it happens. Atleast where they could be bigger without looking too big. Just start taking notice from now on when you see pics of pros, amateurs, or even MD members. Sometimes I think good arms, but those forearms suck.

    And also, it's not too uncommon to see guys in construction with decent forearms and average upper arms. Seriously..... My Dad for one. He even has these 2 thick veins going up the back of them, and he's not lean. The rest of his body does not match....

    Alright I guess there's exceptions you're right. But I still wouldn't work them out separately unless they're obviously lacking...

    I do most of the time, but not always. I like big forearms though. Like Lee Priest/Frank McGrath big

    Priest doesn't do anything for forearms, but McGrath does.

    Genetics play a big part though. Just like with calves. Forearms are probably my best body part and I never work them out. But when it comes to calves, mine suck ass. So I try work them separately.
