5 Forearm Strength Exercises from Pro Golfers

A strong forearm allows a golfer to firmly hold the club while the other muscles are relaxed. You can make better shots with relaxed wrists and increase the speed of the club head. For strengthening your forearm, you need to do a variety of exercises. These exercises don’t require any expensive equipment and many of them can be done without any equipment. Here are some examples of such work outs:

  • Wrist Curls:
    1. Dumbbell: Wrist curls can be done with light dumbbells or with any light weight thing around the house such as food cans. You can try various positions for wrist curls like palms up and palms down. You can also do hammer grips which means you can hold the dumbbell vertically, not horizontally. You can do this exercise with one arm at a time or with both arms simultaneously. Also, you can do it while standing, with your elbows hanging loose or resting on any table. If you want to do it in a seated position, you should do it with your elbows resting on your legs.
    2. Barbell: Barbell curls require more room since they are not very versatile and the size of the barbell is quite large. But, you can innovate many exercises with barbell as well as you can do with the dumbbell.
    3. Self Resistance: This exercise lets you provide self resistance with one arm to the other arm. Sit in a straight-back chair and rest your one elbow on your leg. Curl the fingers of the resting hand into a fist. Place the other hand on the fist and press downwards. You have to interlock the open hand into the fist and resist your efforts to close the fist and pull the palms apart. Reverse the roles for both the hands alternatively. This exercise requires no equipment at all and lets you decide how much resistance you want.
  • Newspaper Crunch
  • Take a full sheet of old newspaper and try to crunch it into a small ball using one hand only. This exercise strengthens your finger muscles and the wrists as well.

  • Wet Towel Exercise
  • Wring all the water out of a wet towel by twisting it in different motions. You can try it with both palms up, then with both palms down. Then, try it with one palm up and then with one palm down. Lastly, do it by reversing the roles of both the palms. This exercise strengthens your forearms by using different motions.
