    Youíre a dick.


  2. I don't want to hijack the thread, but I have a similar question. I need some more exercises to do to grow my arms, but the exercises need to be pretty tame on my wrists. I hurt my wrists years ago by ego curling and lifting someone up(friend of a friend pissed me off so I lifted him up and dropped him. Was pretty dumb but whatever.). I've been on somewhat of a diet and I've been doing hammer curls and my forearms grew half an inch, but my biceps and triceps didn't grow at all. I can do pretty much any movement with a neutral grip. I CAN do bicep curls but I have to use wrist wraps when the weight gets heavy and even then I can barely flex the wrist up with the weight because of how tight my wrists are. Also, I just started doing one arm close grip incline dumbbell presses with a neutral grip, but I'd like more exercises to try.

    Please hijack it. This thread was already derailed by this fool...

    Do you use wrist wraps? If not that would be the first thing. Also use ez bar if you donít already. Straight bar can be rough on your wrists. Unilateral stuff, Db preachers, etc. spider curls are great too.

    One of my favorites are Chins/ Weighted chin are awesome. Palms facing you.

    Yeah I have wrist wraps, but I try to avoid using them unless my wrists are bothering me. Like how I've recently had to use them because my left wrist was hurting while dumbbell benching. I just don't want to always use them and have the muscles around the wrist get weak(if it would cause that). I've tried ez bar, but it still bothers my wrists. Ironically low weight wrist curls do not hurt. seated curls are a bitch, because I'm poor and have to use the olympic dumbbell handles, so the dumbbell would keep hitting the bench. I started incorporating kickbacks.

    I understand wanting to avoid the wraps, but I would personally wear them for your training to avoid pain, and then I would train your wrists separately. Also you should take the wrist wraps off for any of your hammer curls. Really focus on squeezing the handles during your reps, this will better activate the muscles in your forearms.

    The stuff I mostly use wraps for is my pushing and here and there for straight bar curls. Dips, pressing, skull crushers, pushdowns etc use the wraps.

    I use 19.5Ē standard dumbbell handles when I lift at home. Iíve never seen a point of seated NORMAL dumbbell Curls. But I can do seated INCLINE curls with them just fine, and they really give you a deep stetch in the biceps at the bottom.
