So you want strength and power in your forearms? Well who better to learn off then the martial arts master Bruce Lee. It has been said from people who have met Bruce that his grip strength was phenomenal and of course his infamous 1 inch punch uses a lot of explosive forearm strength. The secrets Bruce used are revealed below.
While Bruce has never publicly released his workout routine he has often made many comments about the routines he undertook to reach his phenomenal condition. Using this information here is an estimate of the workout routine Bruce would of used to build his forearms.
"Above all, never cheat on any exercise; use the amount of weight that you can handle without undue strain." – Bruce Lee
- 500 fist push-ups
- 2 Sets of 6 Reps Bench Press
- 2 hours of punching drills
- Wrist Roller (Bruce Lees favorite where you roll up a weight attached to a pole with a string)
Personally I couldn’t even come close to this. But It gives you an idea why he was such an incredible human being. Now I would also add to Bruce’s exercises the wrist curl, palms down wrist curl and any pinch exercise.
