    Forearms

    How do you all strengthen your forarms?

    The only things that are helping me are

    : Nunchaku
    : holding weights out, straining the arm
    : The effects of weightlifting
    : Grippers
    : punching the heavy bag

    can anyone add anything?

    Learn the first form of Wing Chun from somebody, do it _slowly_ (take at least 20 minutes performing it) and hold all the hand positions as tightly as possible.

    Reverse curls, that is like regular curls but instead of the palms facing up, they face down.
    Wrist curls with D.Bells.

    Whenever I try this, I keep yawning.

    You can also get a rope and tie one end to a pipe or a cylindrical piece of wood and tie the other end around a 10-lb plate. The movement is pretty easy, just pretend you're wringing out a wet towel. Continue this motion until the rope is completely around the pipe. After you finish, do it in the opposite direction. It should strengthen your forearms pretty well. Also you can increase the weight as you get stronger.

    Do pull ups while hanging on to towels wrapped around the pole. You gripping the towel should do some good.

    There are TONS of crap you can do for your grip.

    What Ippatsu said...that's a biggie.

    Deadlifting is a classic way.

    "Hammer" (or regular old pipe) levering. http://bigsteel.iwarp.com/Articles2/HammerMan.html

    Shotputs. Tea serving exercises, arm rolls, curls, you name it.

    They're round, you see. Having no handle makes a trivial amount of weight into real forearm/upperbody strength training.

    You may have to have hands of a certain size to make this work.
    I would liken it to the boxing or the muay thai of internal kung fu, even though that's like calling apples the oranges of the apple world. --WalkOn
