Quick Question...

Post by Matu92 » Sat Sep 20, 2008 10:24 am

Hello.

I have very thin wrists but the rest of my arm is relatively muscular.
I was just wondering if anyone knows any exercises that will thicken up my wrist and make it more muscular?

Thanks.

Matt

Unfortunately, the wrist is a joint, not a muscle. You're pretty much stuck with the bone structure that you're born with.

Your forearms can be beefed up using a variety of exercises, but for most people, the muscle bellies of the forearm muscles stop well short of the wrist itself, which is covered by muscle tendons and joint ligaments. Tendons and ligaments get stronger with resistance training, but they don't grow very much.

Thanks :wink:
Do you know of any exercises that can increase the muscle size on my forearm then?

Thanks again.

Don't forget about deadlifts and farmer's walks. These are more whole body exercises but they work your forearms very well. Do these and heavy pulling exercises, and you will probably not have to work your forearms directly very often..
