Mike Mentzer Forearms Workout

Mike Mentzer Foreames

Posted by: Paul

Mike Mentzer was known for his heavily muscled physique and his large and muscular forearms. His forearms were said to be among the biggest in the sport and were a key part of his impressive physique. In this post, we will take a look at Mike Mentzer's forearm workout and how it can help you build big, strong and powerful forearms.

Mike Mentzer was a proponent of high-intensity training and believed that the best way to build muscle was to focus on intensity of effort over duration, in other words - workout harder, not longer. He advocated for short, intense workouts that focused on heavy weights. He also believed that rest and recovery were essential for muscle growth, and he advocated for long periods of rest between workouts.

Mike Mentzer said that every exercise you do where you are gripping the bar, such as deadlifts, shrugs, rows, chins ups, etc. work your forearms, so you don't need to do a lot of direct forearm work.

Mike Mentzer's forearm workout has several benefits. First, it is a great way to build big and strong forearms. The exercises directly target the muscles of the forearms, which are often neglected in other workouts. Second, the workout is designed to be done quickly and efficiently. It can be done in just a few minutes, making it a great option for those who are short on time. Finally, the workout is designed to be done with minimal equipment, making it a great option for those who are on a budget.

Reverse Wrist Curls - 1 set of 12 to 20 reps to failure

When performing Mike Mentzer's forearm workout, it is important to focus on form and quality of movement. Make sure to keep your elbows close to your body and focus on squeezing the muscles of the forearms at the top of each movement. Pause at the top of the movement and then slowly lower the weights back to the starting position. It is also important to use a weight that is challenging but not too heavy that you can't do the exercises slowly and in perfect form.

It is important to note that Mike Mentzer's impressive forearm size was not solely due to his training. He also had a genetic predisposition for building muscle. This genetic predisposition likely played a role in his impressive forearm size. As a matter of fact when I met Mike Mentzer in 1999 his forearms were still huge and he wasn't even working out at the time.

Finally, Mike Mentzer's mental approach to bodybuilding was also important in achieving his impressive forearm size. He believed that the key to success was to stay focused and motivated. He also believed that visualization was an important tool for achieving his goals. He would visualize himself with massive and ripped forearms before each workout.
