    It's not so much forearm muscle that you need; it's grip strength that you need. Plate pinches, Fat Gripz, Captains of Crushers, etc. are some examples of things that help grip strength.

    What are Captains of Crushers?. I googled that and just came up with pictures from star trek.

    Nevermind, found them. I hate those things. They always seemed like a gimmick to me. I'd rather do something not so boring and tedious.

    You could also do things such as rows, pull ups and the likes with towels draped around the bar so that you are gripping the towel and not the barbell.

    This would be like replicating fat grips as Rodja mentioned.

    So are fat Gripz worth the money?
    It is not the kind of car you drive. It is whether you can flip it.

    Elitefts is the ones i have used, but you can always use a trap bar or heavy dumbbells or pour cement and rocks in 5 gallon pales.

    I worded that poorly. I meant loop the towel around the bar so that aren't gripping the bar, pull up bar, whatever at all. You're holding only the towel

    CoC are different from the little springy weights from yesteryear.
