    Cutler + Ronnie.. dont directly work forearms.

    i got a copy of Ronnie Coleman's training tape (The Cost of Redemption) and Chris Cutler's trainingtape (new, Improved and Beyond) and i noticed with all the volume they use, they do little or nothing for their forearms.

    Chris only does pinwheels and Ronnie no direct work on the forearms. No reverse bicep curls, nothing remotely meant to target the forearm.

    Any one dare to say "compound movements take care of the growth of your forearms". I understand different grips on certain exercises such as rows pulldowns etc have different effects on the part of the forearm worked. But seriously?

    I'm not sure what he's really asking, but obviously direct forearm work isn't necessary so long as one chooses the correct exercises to begin with. I'm just starting to do some direct forearm work, but it's for functional strength rather than proportionality.

    When you increase muscle mass or strength on compund movements, your forearms naturally have to work harder too so they grow at about the same rate muscles involved in compound excersizes. If you wanted to exclusively increase the size of your forearms without dirct relation to your other muscles, you can work them directly.

    I don't really train my forearms anymore either. I do however train my grip and hand strength.

    Do you have ronnie or cutlers genetics for building muscle?

Theres your answer on why looking at two of the guys that have the best genetics out of the millions of bodybuilders on this planet might not be appliable to you. I dont ever look at pro bodybuilders and compare them to the genetically inferior. I do look at pro bodybuilders and see what separates elite pros from smaller pros because then your dealing with an even playing ground. (I.E. Ronnie using such tremendous poundages and outsizing everyone else around him)

    I don't bother training my forearms either. Also, I will never use straps under any circumstances. However, I do occasionally train my grip if the rest of my body outpaces my grip strength. Deadlifts and dumbbell work will do plenty for your forearms.
    The only time it's bad to feel the burn is when you're peeing...

    I don't directly train/isolate forearms either, I see no reason to.

    When you hit the volume of GEAR that Cutler and Coleman do...

    Typing on a computer will get your forearms huge

    I do, because I use straps. That, and because I play bass, I feel that I could use a little added forearm work, to strengthen my fretting/speed my fingerpicking.
