    forearms


    Hey guys ,

    In 2 years of training , I have never really given any attention to my forearms.

    Does this affect my training ? and if so how ?

    I also find that my joints on both elbows are very weak , if i put tension on my elbow
    like in arm wrestling I feel a very sensitive pain in my elbow , maybe a muscle?

    Is this problem connected to lack of forearm trainng?

    Is the pain in your elbow your "funny bone"?

    I don't train forearms per se, but i do do various grip strength exercises. I was told by a knowledge able friend that it can lead to arthritis or tendinitis real fast.
    You are your own maker. Train dirty.

    Weak wrists are one thing, weak forearms are another... Weak wrists may mean that your wrists may collapse under heavy weights; weak forearms are just not aesthetic if your a body builder.

    It's more of a discomfort , it starts deep under the elbow and moves up the tendons on my forearm
