Build your forearms and grip strength with the Rolling Thunder device

There is an exercise device that most are not aware of.  It is called the Rolling Thunder (google it) It is basically a very thick bar that revolves and weight is attached via a loading pin that is clipped to the bar.  The best way to train is by doing timed holds, I would suggest  varying the time using different weights.  For example at your heaviest, hold for 5 sec.  Reduce the weight and hold for 15 seconds, etc.  I would think holding for 1 minute would be the longest.  Though  even longer could prove beneficial as well,  experiment!

My last workout I worked up to as heavy as I could hold for a split second with each hand then reduced the weight , doing holds of 10, 20, 40 and 55 seconds.  My forearms were pumped HUGE.    Be sure to try this approach to improve your grip and forearms.  It works!
