Q: How Many Hours To Train To Growing Forearms?

Hi I'm new to this and I need to get bigger to increase confidence and for looking so young. I'm 24 and I'm naturally skinny with small forearms. I have trouble gaining wieght and I need to know if I can get a good body and how long it would take.

I'm off on working on a cruise ship so I have the whole day to train and wanna go strong. Can anyone tell me if they were skinny too and if six hours is a good start? Any advice appreciated?

Dan

    six hours a day? that is way too much. if you put in the work you should get the good body.


    if you are only training your forearms then a couple of exercises will do the trick. will take maybe 15/20 minutes max.
    if you are going to do the whole body then: a session will take 45 minutes or so. a couple of times a week. focusing on specific body parts each session. with good food/diet and bobs your uncle.
    have a look in the beginners section for a suitable routine.
    since you work afloat, equipment may be an issue so you may have to be creative.

    6 hours? No way.

    Quality not quantity is the key.

    Don't be in the gym for longer than an hour at a time. 45 minutes would be even better.

    Hi m8

    When I started training 2yrs ago I used to be really skinny and weighed under 8st and found it almost impossible to put on weight.
    I now weigh 10.5st which has come from training hard 3times a week getting plenty of rest and trying to sort my diet out (although this still needs sum serious attention!)
    My advice would not be to focuss on training your forarms but concentrate on using compound movements such as squats/DL/Rows/Chins which will help develop your whole body and will help your forearms grow aswell as your overall strangth and size. This will give you alot more confidence than just bigger forarms!
    As for six hrs a day well thats got to be impossible if you train hard, just remember it wont happen overnight, it takes a long time but if you sort out a good routine and diet, train hard and results will come!!!!!!!!!!!

    make sure you get a good routine that works for you and make sure you do quality training with the correct sort of weightage and keep good form and you will see gains. Good luck as im in the same sort of boat as you.
