Weighted forearm stretches will be done after your forearm exercise when using the WLC System for building muscle and burning fat.
I want you to have your forearms warmed up before performing any type of stretch for your forearms.
I'm really careful with forearms because I've had trouble with them before. Stretching has really helped them get stronger.
It seems to give the forearm muscles more room to grow while adding flexibility… you just can't go wrong with that.
I've had no problems at all since implementing forearm exercises and stretching into my weight lifting program. My forearms feel really good now.
Forearms are one of those muscles that many people forget about. Too many people rely on other exercises to build their forearms. Not here at WLC.
We use big compound exercises to work them along with stretches specifically for the forearms.

My Experience with Weighted Forearm Stretching
Stretching forearms has built much of the muscle on my forearms and have helped my forearms look better overall. If you want better looking forearms that impress people, add weighted stretching into your forearm training. I know you want to have forearms like Popeye!
I like to use a the bottom position of the wrist curl for my stretch. I've been using this one for a while, and I continue to receive great results. I use dumbbells so that I don't tweak my wrists with a barbell like I have in the past. I suggest you use dumbbells too.
I also like to perform wrist curls before I perform the stretch so that I get a good pump in my forearms before I stretch them out.
This is not a requirement, but it also gets my forearm belly muscles warm before stretching them. I've had trouble with my forearms and wrists before so I like to be extra careful with them.
How to for Forearm Stretch #1
I always use my New Grip weight lifting gloves when performing any forearm exercises or weighted streches. They've really helped me to become injury free. The image below shows the bottom position of a wrist curl. This is the position I use to stretch my forearms.
I usually perform wrist curls before doing the stretch so I can keep my forearm muscles warm.
I then hold the bottom position without setting the weight down for the required time. I usually go for around a minute.
This stretch can really burn and you'll probably want to drop the weights.
I always use dumbbells because they are free to move. A barbell confines my wrists to a certain position. A barbell makes the position uncomfortable for my wrists.
The image below is a closer view of the bottom position of a wrist curl.
Forearms are one of those muscles that everyone will see the most. Why slack off of on your forearm development?
Impressive forearms are a thing of beauty. Always strive to improve your forearms. They are very important and should be a focus of any weight lifting program.
