Q: “I have a few questions concerning forearm size and grip strength. I remember that you mentioned thick bar exercises in one of your blog posts. I haven’t been able to find information on those exercises. What are some thick bar exercises?
“Another article suggested that doing compound lifts such as deadlifts and snatches will strengthen your grip and increase forearm size without the need for isolation exercises. Is that something that you would suggest?”
My Answer: Do yourself a favor and get a pair of thick bar heavy handles. Thick bar exercises just mean you do regular exercises with thick bars and dumbbells, so no matter what exercise you do, you’re working the forearms. Heavy handles allow you to work most of the conventional bodybuilding exercises with a thick grip.
