RHET bros I have a question again.
I have really skinny wrists (like sub 6.5" circumference) and forearms. Does that hinder my general growth of arms and is there a reasonable way to train your forearms? All I know is wrist curls which I've never done so far because of all the "if you deadlift and bench they'll grow by themselves" which they seemingly don't in my case.
In combination with long biceps insertions/tendons my arms look like little meatballs on skewers.

I guess my hamstrings kind of get worked out during deadlifts. Never really understood why so many people isolate the hamstrings. They are not "sexy" muscles.

@Szeph el raton no point in worrying about something that you can't change, you will grow if you keep exercising well. Add more volume for arms, and for forearms there are plenty of exercises (when doing biceps do hammercurls, reverse curls, wrist curls) and doing them with good volume should get them growing.

And farmers walks. If you can walk 50m with your bodyweight in dumbells you're doing pretty well.

I've done a bit of reading on this. There are a ton of different muscles in the forearm. It's really easy to feel an intense burn with wrist curls, so I suspect that you can make noticeable gains in a relatively short amount of time. I've also read a few impressions that say overhand wrist curls can easily cause tendinitis, so I stay away from those.

I also wanted to work out the muscle that's responsible for this specific movement:



And this was the best I could find:

http://www.sw.org/HealthLibrary?page=Flexor+Carpi+Ulnaris+and+Flexor+Carpi+Radialis+Tendinitis%2C+with+Rehab-SportsMed

Scroll down to where it says "STRENGTH - Ulnar Deviators." I have a regular hammer and it is too light. I'm thinking I can buy a sledge hammer and just adjust the weight by where I hold the handle. I have a tomahawk and it's on the light side. Not to mention if I drop it I may really end up hurting my foot.

Can you post pictures of your physique or lifts because this looks like some bullshit.

I've only been doing forearms for like 2 weeks. If you look at the anatomy it seems pretty straight forward for that one specific muscle for that one specific movement. The site I link to is pretty legit though, I'm taking their word for it.

Having got back to a normal training routine and program, I had to acquire some new suiting. Ran into a rather novel problem which I had not encountered yet, none of the OTR trou fit my calves - for a 38 jacket, had to go up to like 42 to get this shit even past my lower leg. Ridiculous considering I'm kinda dyel anyways. I guess if you want to lift, you got to be baller enough for bespoke trou.

I have no idea what it's called, but my old gym had one. Old school piece of equipment, it's a rod with a string that you can attach a weight plate too, and you hold it straight out in front of you and try to roll it up.

Can't say I know what you mean by your description, but I'm interested. Could you please find a picture of what you're talking about?
