    Workouts that are easy on forearms

    My forearms are pretty messed up right now, does anyone have any exercises that are effective but easy on the forearms. I just got a couple of the bandit braces for my forearms but pullups were still way to painfull to do.

    hmm, that's a tough one, because you almost always have to grip a weight, meaning you're almost always going to activate your forearm.

    What is wrong with it exactly? How does it feel on push exercises (bench, military, etc)? I'm assuming the most trouble you're having is with the pull exercises, meaning back and bis. I can't really think of any way around it...

    maybe for bis if you find a machine preacher, you can set the machine as though you have really short arms, and place the handle on your wrist and do the movement like that....?

    Also, for cable machines I think they sell this strap type thing which people basically wrap around their ankle and attach to the pulley, so they can work their leg out at various angles. Maybe you can grab one of those and strap it around your wrist?

    One general piece of advice I cna give is go light weight high reps, it should be a lot easier on your forearms, shoot for around 15+ reps per exercise at lighter weight, see how that does you. My knee gives me problems when I do leg curls, but they are pretty essential for hammys, so I do 15-20 reps at lighter weights and been getting great results.

    You should try this that he said but try to discuss this problem with a personal trainer. I am sure that you will find good answers. If you need any help to me then you can ask anything.

    A personal trainer will not be able to provide a routine based off of an injury. Saintsfan will need to see a sports medicine doctor to assess the problem first.

    That's not entirely true. Working with tons of people over the past few years I have seen all kinds of injuries. Based on previous experience I have been able to help people with similar types of injuries. Obviously working with a doctor is probably a good idea, but it's never a bad one to pick a PTs brain.

    just to clarify, this is basically the type of thing I was talking about with this.

    Pretty much depends on what the issue is with the forearm tho, because it will still create some pressure up around the wrist

    Thanks for the helps guys . I have been wearing the bandit braces for a few days now and they seem to be giving enough support to allow my forearms to rest up a bit. I have never done an actual forearm workout so I think I might try once a week with light weights to see if my forearms are weak thus causing pain when trying for more pullups and heavier curls.

    I suggest you to buy light curling weight dumbbells. That is the best and easy exercise for forearms. Spring hand grip exercise is also a great technique.
