    well, finally the moment of truth. I've made an attempt to make my forearms bigger, been trying for years and finally gave the "everyday" training them a shot and my results were pretty phenomenal IMO

    I went from a 15 1/4 flexed to 15 3/4 flexed in 2 months. So anyone who feels like they are lagging behind, I do strongly recommend training them every day. I'm gonna keep this up, hope to hit the 17 mark in the future

    "Program"

    I have a 35 lb DB which I do hammer curls until failure on each arm (about 50 reps now, started about 30-35) and I do about 4 sets each night

    I also do plate pinches until failure, never kept count on these. I just pinch a 35 lb plate with both hands and hang on until it falls

    every day I'm at the gym I do behind the back wrist curls with the barbell until failure, 3 sets

    i am just starting to do this too after reading a pdf where schwarzenegger recommends it. same with abs and calves too, you can train them daily and just take off days when you need some rest

    +1.

    Heavy deads, heavy curls, and rock climbing do me just fine.

    I really should try calves everyday. Once a week, no matter how hard I hit them, isn't doing enough.

    dunno, never had any issues. I haven't been training them directly throughout this time, so maybe this is sufficient time to recover?

    No such thing as overtraining.
