If you want to target both your biceps and forearms with one exercise, this is the exercise for you! This exercise is great for your lower biceps and will strengthen and build your forearms in no time. The only catch is that you need to have a strong grip on the barbell when doing this exercise.

The heavier you load the bar, the stronger your grip will need to be. Thus, if your grip is not as strong as a vice don't worry! Stick with this exercise and it will be strong enough very soon! Forearms and wrists get stronger fairly quick for most lifters.
