This type of exercise will allow you to work your forearms muscles. However, it is necessary to make sure that you have reached the intermediate level before doing this workout.
How to perform this exercise:
- Find two wide rimmed plates then put them together so that their smooth sides are facing outwards.
- After that, grip the plate’s outside part with your fingers and grip the other side with your thumb in order to hold them together. This will be your starting position.
- Start squeezing the plate using your thumb as well as your fingers. Then try to hold this position as long as possible.
- Keep following these steps until you have finished all the recommended reps then switch to the other arm.
Caution: If you try to hold the plates for an inadequate amount of time, it is very likely that you will drop them. As a result, the plates may fall on your feet or other body parts which may lead to unexpected injuries. Therefore, if you have a feeling that the plates are going to slip out of your hand, slowly keep your knees bent while maintaining a straight back then gently place them on the ground.
