Still dreaming of those thick and meaty forearms that the Hollywood projectors showed you. You can stop now… or not… if you want to remain on the losing side.
I am here to tell you that your dreams are a certified waste of time in 99.9%+0.01% of the cases.
Yes, they told you that the sky is the limit, but in reality, the ceiling of your room is the limit.
What is the most popular recipe for achieving barbaric forearms? Wrist rolling, wrist curls, deadlifts…
Those are some cool exercises that can give you an erotic pump, but they will not make your forearms grow any more than playing WoW will. So, just play WoW, bro.
The main reason why forearm upgrades fail is this:
SHORT MUSCLE BELLIES
Short muscle bellies is what you see on DYEL (do you even lift) individuals such as myself. They are often located on the forearms and calves and result in impossible growth since there is nothing to grow apart from a few centimeters of meat. And since there is nothing to grow, nothing grows regardless of how hard you squeeze things.
Big forearms are like big calves, sex and money – those who have them in abundance do nothing to acquire them. It all comes naturally like the Sun in the morning.
The men with the nastiest forearms do not train them harder than you. Their secret is proper genetics i.e. long muscle bellies. This isn’t a joke. The poster boys for forearms DO NOTHING specifically to build those forearms. They just exist, eat and sometimes inject. That’s it. Mystery solved.
“But AlphaDestiny showed me some underground arm wrestling exercises. I will get huge.”
Be my guest, bro. If you don’t have long muscle bellies, your forearms will be “lacking” forever regardless of the wrist twists you do to make them grow. You wanna know why? Well, I already told you, but it never gets old – because tendons do not grow. And when you have long tendons, the bones remain “naked”. Case closed.
What if I just inject, bro?
Now you are starting to make sense. One problem remains, however. Injections do not change your genetics – they amplify them. If you have lacking forearms as a natural, they remain poor even when you become unnatural. There are many professional bodybuilders who eat tren like a fat kid eats cake, and yet their forearms and calves are still resembling a table’s leg.
“But, bro. I started forearm specialization 2 weeks ago. I’m seeing nice growth.”
It’s called hallucinations and pump, bro. You are toning your forearms muscles by keeping residual tension in them through frequent exercise. This is not actual growth but a state of “preparedness.”
Furthermore, you are appreciating fibers that were there before.
Let me tell you a story.
After my permabulking years, I cut and decided to do a bodybuilding high rep routine. After 6-8 months, I looked at my legs and said: “Those quads have grown.” I even took pictures.
Eventually, I found myself in a downtime period. I stopped training for at least six months. I guess I was finally getting smart. One day I went to a swimming pool near work and took photos in the locker room like a total narcissistic jerk. Don’t worry. I was alone and no people were traumatized.
I couldn’t find a difference in my quads despite not training them for half a year. Yet I am sure that if I was to begin a specialization routine, I would be seeing mutation after a few days. Sadly, the transformation would be happening only in my delusional mind.
“But what about Albert Beckles, bro. He has super short insertions and had thick forearms.”
I knew you are one of the dreamers.
Have you ever heard the expression: “Exceptions prove the rule.”
Beckles had developed forearms, but they were still lacking. His forearm above describes perfectly what I mean by “naked wrist”.
The sad truth, my friend, is that short muscle bellies have always sucked for bodybuilding purposes and will continue to do so until you and I become dust in the wind.
The megaphones will try to flip things with consolation tactics e.g., “shorter biceps make it easier to build a nice peak”, but honestly, that’s just one of the many stupid ways people lie to themselves.
Let me crack the code for you. Whenever someone says, I have genetically gifted “insert body part here”, he actually says this – “Body part X has long muscle bellies.”
Short muscle bellies NEVER help when your goal is to bodybuild. Wherever they go, they bring weakness with them – lats, biceps, triceps, quads, calves, forearms…etc. There are no exceptions.
What about wrist size?
Bro, sad news again.
Are you familiar with the saying: “When it rains it pours.”
It translates to this – if you get slapped, you will probably get punched too.
Wrist thickness influences forearm size. As I told you in the book Potential, thicker bones equal bigger muscles by default.
Ironically, most men with short muscle bellies have thinner wrists too. This is a dual strike against the dream for massive forearms. As they say – the poor get poorer; the rich get richer.
