Hammer curls for the upper forearm and continue doing your curls, also I'd try and lift extremely heavy, i.e. 5 sets of 5. Then finish off every workout with a drop set to get a massive pump. Worked for me I've seen good growth over the past 2 months off cycle even, I used to have trouble growing the forearms in relation to my bi's.

Get a pair of Fat Gripz. You'll never have to bother with direct forearm training again.M.Ed. Ex Phys

i used to do forearm workouts like that. after years i has real skinny forearms that were weak as hell.
then i started doing heavy deadlifts, heavy farmers, using an axle, and using KBs and my grip improved dramatically. i used to not be able to close a CoC #1, now im right on the edge of closing a #2.
here is a good link for grip stuff:
you can call me "ozzie" for short.

I'm more concerned with size though as opposed to functional strength, more in it for the aesthetics, lol sadly.

Behind the back wrist curls work well for me. Stand up straight use a straight curl bar and youll be feelin a good tightening of your forearm muscle for sure.

I sit at a preacher machine.and pick.a medium weight, something I can do 15reps with. Curl it ten times slowly. Maintain complete control. Then reverse it so your palms are down and do it ten more times. Do not rest. Do this for as long as you can until you can't do one rep. Then rest a few minutes and do it again

Look at the anatomy of the forearm:
Notice that the vast majority of muscles in the forearm's function is to flex the digits of the hand. All the tendons run past the wrist and attach somewhere on the phalanges.
The only exception really is the flexor carpi ulnaris/raidalis. And in this case, these larger muscles are involved in wrist flexion. Which, if you can hand onto significant weight, will receive ultimately greater overload and recruitment in steadying the wrist when lifting or holding heavy ass weight.

I lift relatively heavy(to me) & i've never had problems gripping the weight, for some though I can see how fat gripz would help alot with grip development.

That looks good but I would add in plate pinches for time. Just grab a 45lb and pinch it at the top and time yourself. Great for practical strength and developing size
