  • Static holds--forearms

    Im going to start doing static holds with Db's for forearms but there is one thing im not sure of. A set of statics include seconds instead of reps, so i was just wondering if 1 set of 12-15 second holds to failure would be ok. Would just that one set be ok?

    Thnx

    There are no static holds on forearms, period. The forearms get enough work from other stuff. Especially back thickness and lat work (when lat work gets heavy enough)

          After you do Biceps and go right into Forearms with maybe one warm up set, this 12 rep set is more than enough torture on your Forearms then you need, if anything just do a Forearm stretch, but static is not needed, think of all the work your Forearms get on Chest day...

            Jn23:You may have been thinking along the lines of the stretch for the forearm belly dante mentioned awhile back. Think its in the sticky up there which also contains the unique back width exercise.

            You could try it, but i think a 12-15s hold is too short. If you weren't thinking along these line.. sorry!
            Consistency is the key

              while it may not fit into DC training specifically, I know I found static holds helped my grip a lot and i found that it did more than just other lifts like deads or racks alone. I did them with the thick end of the bar though ... where one would load plates. just something to think about.

                yes they do work. For those that have lagging forearms, this exercise works great. Stick to one set to complete failure. 12-15 sec. is to short.
