Thanks! Working hard. Getting there... slowly but surely 😉

Pretty much everything I do is performed overhand thumbless (aka monkey grip) besides a few exercises here and there only.

What’s your thinking behind the high frequency, lowish volume forearm work? You find it superior in terms of muscle gain? Or you just enjoy it? 😄 nice log! love the heavy 3x6 Chuck Sipes wrist curls 💪

I respond well to high frequency specificity dominate programs as long as I: watch the daily/weekly volume; alternate daily the target movement (e.g. flexors, extensors, deviation, rotation, support work/static holds, etc.); and insure to complete my daily active recovery (bmx hill cycling; swimming; sauna/steam/cold pool).  Been almost two years and I have gained over 2" so it is working for me. I know a few top-level arm wrestlers; grip strength athletes; professional sailing grinders; and world champion kendo athletes that all train their grip and/or forearms daily sometimes multiple times.
