    I'd assume they would, pursuant to all of the usual conditions required for hypertrophy.

    I'm going to make a radical departure here and say, if you hands and forearms are sore from working out maybe you need to rest them instead of working out more.

    Pfft. Rest? Rest is for the weak. Like I always say, "If it's sore, just lift more!"

    In all seriousness, though, you're probably right.
    1) Rest it until it feels okay.
    2) Introduce extensor work (ugh, bands) gradually.
    3) Resume training, but watch for the reappearance of symptoms.
    4) Then start thinking about Popeye forearms.

    Speaking of bands, I saw a physiotherapist today, and we talked about grip work a bit.

    -He agreed about the unwieldiness of reverse wrist curls, and said that reverse wrist roller should do the same thing much better
    -He scored me some exercise bands for me to try using for extensor work - hopefully they won't slip off like the rubber bands often do

    I gave the 3 a serious go for a while, but I ultimately realized that to get to close the 3, I'd need to put my primary goals on hold to get there, and really, though grip work is fun, I'd rather bring up my powerlifting total.

    I can close the #2 for 20 reps with either hand, and I was able to close the 2.5 for 5 reps with my right hand for a while. Presently, I'm just maintaining on my grip training.

    Read the stickies.
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Well, it depends dude. Usually over training can cause a substantial muscular imbalance that aggravates the situation. Any form of inflammation on the inside of the forearms, from the palm down to the inside of the elbow usually requires both 1) rest of that area and 2) exercise on its antagonistic muscles. OTH, inflammation on the opposite, on the outside of the forearm, that's what really screw up people because they can't do anything at all; they have to rest (and sometimes ice) the entire forearm.

    So it all depends on what's being over trained and whether that has caused an imbalance that needs to be treated immediately.

    I know this is a belated contribution but...

    I used to have a grip like a little girl and needed straps to deadlift anything over 100kg.

    I received a Captain of Crush gripper two years ago (thank you Santa).

    I trained with said item.

    I no longer have a grip like a little girl.

    Just my experience.
