Lets be honest peeps. Probably the main reason amateur  bodybuilders like myself seek to develop their forearms is to gain a tremendous amount of size in this area, and ultimately improve the overall quality of their physique.

master coach Fred knows the importance of forearm for aesthetics and strength
By strengthening the forearms, one can enhance their ability to engage in heavy liftingacross all muscle groups. Often, the forearms can form a weak link which, in turn, limits the types of exercises one can do. For example, to fully develop the back,

chins and bent rowing 

are fundamental prerequisites. Without a strong grip, using heavy weights with these exercises is next to impossible.

Indeed, increases in forearm strength will lead to upper-body strength gains overall, in that the lifter can safely make the transition to a heavier overall weight increase without fear of the forearms giving out on them mid-set. Thus, in this regard, effective forearm training leads to safer, more efficient training sessions.
