This exercise is not the ideal exercise for beginners since it does require fairly strong gripping power. If you're a beginner and still want do do this exercise, you may want to use a very light (short) barbell.

The good news about gripping strength is that it improves pretty fast. For some people it may take longer depending on how much previous weight-lifting experience you have.

In addition, forearm muscles get stronger and bigger fairly quick which means that you will need to change your forearm workout routine every 4 to 6 weeks to keep them challenged.
