The elements are there.

Pushing. Shoving. Pulling. Grabbing.

Good thing you’re not in high school.

Sounds like a date gone wrong.

Well, that depends if you are the one winning at the above.

Yes, it is a date.

With your opponents on the female grappling mats.

Virtually every match we have watched or reviewed, the Fem Competitors involved begin with hand fighting, pulling, grabbing and shoving to maneuver their opponent into a weaker position to be submitted.

What can help you be successful at the above?

Having strong forearms.

The forearm is the region of the upper limb between the elbow and the wrist.

The term forearm is used in anatomy to distinguish it from the arm, a word which is most often used to describe the entire appendage of the upper limb, but which in anatomy, technically, means only the region of the upper arm, whereas the lower “arm” is called the forearm.

Nice basics.

Let’s now focus on strengthening your forearm with a view to the beginning of the match and subsequent next round beginnings where the hand fighting starts.

Forearm exercises and hand strength training for building a strong grip are important components of a complete workout which are often overlooked.

However, there are great benefits for people who take the time to train their hands and make them stronger.

Think about it?

Whether you’re playing a sport, working out in the gym, or just fulfilling your day-to-day responsibilities, your hands are what you use to interact with almost everything around you.

You can have all the upper body strength in the world, but if your hands and forearms aren’t strong enough to deliver that strength to the baseball bat, tennis racket, hockey stick, barbell, or whatever else you’re trying to move, it’s not worth very much.

Strong and healthy hands are also just a wonderful asset to have in your daily life. You’ll never stop needing your hands, and taking the time to keep them in great shape is a very smart long-term investment in your body.

Hand And Forearm Exercises teaches you a full set of hand strengthening exercises, complete with pictures and detailed descriptions to ensure proper form. These are interesting and effective exercise which are also quite convenient? Most require either common household objects or no equipment at all.

If you’re interested in getting to the next level of hand strength for any reason?

Whether you’re trying to create an advantage in athletic competition, or just trying to keep your hands healthy and strong?

This book will get you there. Pick up a physical or digital copy today, and get started.”

Good suggestions.

For you newer Female Wrestlers, just substitute wrestling for the sports above.

Let’s keep going.

We now have a visiting writer with some well thought out suggestions.

Forearm Training: Effective Tips For Explosive Growth!

Forearms, shmorearms right? Wrong! Jokes aside, neglecting your forearms whether it is a result of laziness or simply not including it in our programs is a mistake that begins at the beginner level and carries itself through to advanced intermediate trainers (perhaps even a few pro’s but these are few and far between).

The major mistake trainers make is assuming that nobody believes that forearms can ‘Wow’ people, they see it as a muscle group with less ‘glamour potential’ than the other body parts. Some would place their calves higher on the scale of priorities than forearms. This is logic that I do not really understand: If one loves upper body training so much, it follows logically that forearm training would be catered for. Powerful forearms allow you to grip heavy weight and in doing so permit you to complete exercises optimally. I’m sure that most trainers have been in a situation where they were holding a weight, completing an exercise, when their forearms began to burn and eventually causing you to rest. The notion of training forearms flashes through the mind then is discarded in a nonchalant fashion.

In summary, here are the common reasons for neglecting forearm training:

  • Wrong attitude – If you hold the belief that forearm training is not important; then it is blatantly obvious that you won’t spend time training them. Treat all body parts equally; an impressive physique is a puzzle to put together, one part is not more important than another.
  • Neglecting time – Instead of using the last 20 minutes training forearms (Which if done effectively, all you need!), most trainers opt to complete more sets for their primary muscle group being trained that day or even use it to train their abdominals.
  • Ineffective methods – As mentioned in my Calf Training article, the calves and forearms are shockingly similar. The forearms are used in ALL upper body movements, which means they are used to being worked at a very high frequency. Even daily, when at home or at work; picking things up, shaking hands, cooking, cleaning, typing, drinking, eating — your forearms are working! You therefore cannot expect them to grow if you train them in a fashion that is similar to these activities.

While difficult to grow, the forearms have an enormous capacity for both growth and glamour. Here are practical tips that can be implemented from your next workout:

  • Working the flexors and extensors – The forearms are composed of two muscles; the flexors and extensors. Their names betray their functions, but I’ll explain anyway: The flexors are used to flex the forearm, that is when your palm is faced toward the ceiling and is as close to your elbow as possible without bending your arm. The extensors are used to extend the forearm, they are stimulated when your palms face the floor and your knuckles are as close to your elbow as possible without bending your arms.
  • Squeeze! – Doing light weights for many reps may feel like you’re getting a good forearm workout; but the truth is that when you’re doing over 15 repetitions for an exercise you are working your endurance muscle fibers (type 1a). Opt for a heavy, but manageable weight; one where you can complete a full range of motion. Once at the top of the movement (where the back side of your hand is parallel to the floor, for flexors. For extensors, the back of your hands should be parallel with your shoulders if seated and the ceiling, if standing.) Hold the weight there for 5 seconds before bringing it down, slowly and deliberately, to the starting position.
  • Explode up, slow down – Your forearms are powerful muscles. You can utilize this power to move the weight powerfully to the top of the movement and once there; using that same power to slow the weight down on the way back to the starting position.

Having powerful forearms allow your other lifts to increase as it may well be the weak link in your physique and thus may impede your progress if not taken care of correctly.
