This exercise is great for beginners as it doesn't require a focus on balance as much as forearm exercises utilizing dumbbells. If you are a beginner and you do this exercise for the first time, you may feel prolonged soreness in your forearms for several days later. This is completely normal because your forearms and tendons will need some time to get adjusted to the weight workouts. Thus, stick with the exercise and after a few weeks your forearms and wrists will get stronger.

In addition, your grip will get stronger as time goes on. Gripping strength is something that is very important for anyone lifting weights because most lifting involves grabbing barbells, cable handles and ropes as well as dumbbells.
