A DIY Forearm Trainer Kit
I occasionally get physically active and do some training. I was figuring out what kind of physical activity that I could do when I'm sitting. This is when I thought about doing some exercises for the forearm.
As I'm someone who loves to DIY, I wanted to figure out which actions I want my forearm to do, and I remember being a teenager doing some dumbbell training that had to be rolled with both your arms stretched out. I wanted something kind of similar to that, but not having to stand up which is when I came up with this thought of putting some simple parts together and construct a stick grenade like device that can be used.
Here is what I came up with:
All the parts used are sourced from a local hardware store, but nevertheless here is a quick summary of what I used:
- Galvanized steel nipple - 180mm in length and has a diameter of around 3.5cm
- Steel caps for both the ends as per the dimensions
- Range extender that goes from 3.5cm to 5cm in diamater
- Small steel nipple that can be attached to the range extender - 10cm in length and 5cm in diameter
With a few rubber dampeners, I have the whole set up ready. Now all what I need is a Olympic sized weight plate that I need to insert on the top end of this stick. I hope to pue this one to good use when I'm sitting resting!
