This is a classic forearm exercise. The movement is easy to execute and it will build your forearm muscles fairly quick. After doing this exercise for a while (4 to 6 weeks) you should move on to more advanced forearm exercise that involve the use of dumbbells. Forearm muscles are small and to keep them challenged you need to mix up the variety of exercises you hit them with.

Also, keep in mind that if you experience some soreness in your wrists for the first while, this is normal. If you have never done forearm exercises before it will take some time for your wrist joints and ligaments to get used to the stress placed on them.
