Matt will be the first to
Matt will be the first to admit that he didn't usually target the forearm area when he was lifting bigger weights. Now that's not to be taken for advice, Matt didn't need to target his forearms because they grew naturally through the years and years of training he had under his belt by the time he was breaking world records. So why focus on your forearms you ask? Well, it's simple, the stronger your forearms are the better you are going to look along with adding to your stability for the core lifts.
So to break it down you should consider focusing some of your training time to your forearms because it will allow you to lift more but also aesthetically will give you big results.
Matt recommends starting with banded wrist exercises and to focus on volume or timed sets to start with. These exercises will help with flexibility and even can promote great wrist circulation in improved motor function. Next, you need to try and get yourself some fat gripz, they are a key tool in getting stronger forearms. By increasing the circumference of a weight or implement you take away the ability for your body to get a full 360-degree grip. Straining your wrist and forearm muscles to hold onto the object. This automatically helps your body with grip strength over time and you will feel the burn even more if you use these regularly! Next, if you can get yourself a kettlebell and use some isolated wrist exercises at an incline or decline this will also focus the muscle hypertrophy to the forearm area! Be sure to vary your movements and modes, this will help you avoid overuse issues!
