This exercise requires a strong grip which means it's not the ideal exercise for complete beginners. If you're a beginner, you should do basic forearm exercises such as the Barbell Wrist Curl. After you do easier exercises you can progress to more difficult exercises such as the one shown here.

Keep in mind that getting your forearms in shape will require some time. The good news is that they get stronger fairly quickly as does your grip. Having a strong grip is very important for any kind of weightlifting since all lifting involves gripping barbells, cable handles and dumbbells. The stronger your grip the more control and balance you will have over the weights, especially free weights.
