    Because of my slim build, I have tiny wrists, 6'inch circumference... Forearms are at ten inches.


    I do workout on the forearms but I do have a bit of a complex in regards to my wrist.

    Is it a myth or fact that you can't alter your wrist size?

    Curious to know

    its mostly skin, bone and tendon in the actually wrist it's self, you can work on your forearm flexors but it wont change the size of your wrists.

    I can identify! I can wrap my fingers all the way around my wrist and go past the first knuckle. It's sad.

    I've been hitting up my forearms really hard, but no luck. I can count every single muscle on my forearm when I flex, but they still taper down to a skinny little wrist. icon_confused.gif

    Worse yet, now I think I have forearm splints - is there such a thing? Whenever I do a curl and let go of the bar, my forearms feel like they're going to explode, so I can't even work them much anymore. I'm starting to think I'll have stick wrists forever.

    5 3/4 inches here, Bud. That's on a good day and after decades of regular workouts. So. . .um no, not so much.

    Thing is, don't get hung up on some particular body part. That may just be the part that makes you you. Do your thing and achieve the overall effect you want. That's what people see and that's what counts.

    Regards,
    Jay

    Break them, wait about a week and then go to the hospital.

    That will beef them up

    You can not change the size of your wrists because you won't have enough fat or muscle to grow there to make a visible difference.

    Having small wrists may suggest you're small boned - you can't change that. If you have small wrists and work out your biceps it will give the appearance that you have bigger arms [in proportion]. However if your arms are too big it will emphasize the size of your small wrists. It's all about proportions and creating illusions lol...

    My quest is rather why do you want bigger ones, because mine are on the rather large size and its impossible to find a watch.

    So you should be thankful that mine are thinner and watch friendly.

    I have skinny wrists too. I have to take a bunch of links out every time I buy a new watch. My feet and ankles are real slim too and it is hard to find shoes that fit me right. Not much we can do about it though.

    Your wrist is mostly bone. That's why it's used an indicator for growth patterns, etc.

    You're an ectomorphic somatype, most likely.

    Just FYI: My wrist is 7.25 inches.

    I have the same problem, but yoga poses involving wrists and hands have made them amazingly stronger and more flexible. try eagle pose, head stand, hand stands, elbow stands.
