    Yes picking up heavy things is how you build juicy horse forearms.

    Because the morons and people baiting you into believing DLs are bad have hidden RDLs from you. They're awesome for grip and your forearms when you do them heavy and high reps. I'll do them at like 160~ (my normal DL is like 290) and 3x12. Feels great.

      You have two options:
      Alternate grip, I used to do this. Supposedly not great biomechanically but idk.
      Hook grip, I learned this. With RDLs actually. Pretty sure the tendinopathy I have in my thumb right now is related.

        I mixed grip, helped bring my grip strength from a measly 2 plate to a 3 plate

          Using chalk? I got to 4 plate+ with alternative, grip was never a problem. Plan right now (I haven't lifted in 5+ years) was to do the same with hook grip, but I have tendonitis in my wrist along the lower tendon and I think it's related, what is fucked is that it actually doesn't hurt while lifting but just gets worse and worse over time, and a bit of googling indicates it might be the hook grip.

      I'm gonna second dead hangs, especially at the end of days where you squat or deadlift.
      Seriously man, yeah sure you're getting your grip strength in and very efficiently, but more importantly your back just always feels better.

      You need to actively keep your legs straightened by engaging the quadriceps.
