Re: wrists and forearms
I found my forearms get enough workout while doing my ther exercises, the muscles are used for gripping. You cannot make your wrist bigger as there is no muscle present here but wrist curls, hammer curls, reverse grip bicep curls are good for the forearms.
Wrist curls - kneel down at a bench holding a dumbell in each hand. Rest your forearms on the bench, with hands over the edge, palms facing up. Lift the weights by bending your wrist keeping your forearms on the bench. You can try this 'reverse' with palms facing down also.
Hammer curls - stand holding a dumbell in each hand like a hammer, your palm facing in at the thigh with the weights at the front and back of your leg. Keeping your elbows tucked in and without moving your back or upper arm or twisting the dumbell, raise the dumbell in the same manner as a bicep curl.
Reverse grip bicep curls - instead of doing a curl with the palm facing forward at the bottom, rotate your hand around so that the palm is facing behind you at the start and is facing the wall at the top of the bicep curl.
