This exercise is ideal for beginners because it's fairly low impact on the wrists. The cable motion is smooth and guided making it very easy to get used to.

Once you do this exercise for a while you should be able to handle more advanced forearm exercises that involve the use of dumbbells. Until then, strengthen your forearms and grip by doing this exercise for at least 6 weeks.

Lastly, you will feel soreness in your forearms and wrist for a few days after doing this exercise for the first time. However, this is normal because your wrists and tendons in your forearm need a few sessions to get used to the new movement and pressure placed on them.
