The E-Flex Forearm Bars are a True Free-Weight Training Apparatus specifically designed to strengthen the wrist flexors and build powerful forearms. Our Forearm Bars allow you to stand and directly flex the weight for optimal range of motion resulting in substantially increased muscle concentration and Forearm / Wrist strength development.
You can always tell a seasoned bodybuilder by their strong well defined vascular forearms. The forearms make up almost 1/2 of your arms, without strong forearms overall arm symmetry and strength will be severely lacking. Well built forearms used to come from years of training and always took longer to develop because the forearms have always been trained indirectly whether it be with barbells, grip emphasis devices or wrist rollers. The weight or tension that is being applied in these manners lies on the same plane as the gripping hands and is in such close proximity to the forearms that the inertia used to move the weight is not directly opposed to the forearms. This in turn does not allow full activation of all the muscles groups that make up the forearms and wrist flexors.
The Forearm Bars and the Monster EZ curl Bars incorporate a patented forearm and wrist strength training attachment that places the weight on a plane opposed to the gripping hands allowing a straight line of pull. This applies tension directly to the forearms and wrist flexors making it 60-70% more efficient than barbells, wrist rollers or grip emphasis devices.
For overall forearm and wrist strength development you must isolate and target the four major muscle groups that make up the forearm:
- Forearm Flexors - (wrist and grip strength)
- Wrist Flexors - (wrist and grip strength)
- Extensor Muscles - (elbow and wrist rotation)
- Brachioradialis - (acts to flex the forearm at the elbow)
The E-Flex Forearm Bar targets all of these muscle groups. Barbells target the wrist flexors, forearm flexors and limited engagement of the brachioradialis. Wrist Rollers target the Forearm Flexors and partially target the Brachioradialis. Grip Emphasis Devices target the Forearm Flexors with partial engagement of the Wrist Flexors.
