Sample Forearm Exercise Workouts.

Perform Forearms once a week and not more than twice a week. As forearms also receive constant stimulation during bicep exercises they require less sets. I suggest once a week total forearm workout is sufficient for its complete stimulation.

Forearms is a small muscle and used in all exercises. I suggest 6-8 sets of the best exercises will suffice the need.

4 sets each of 10, 8, 6 and 4 reps.
