I try to use my feet as much as possible. Mind you, I'm a beginner and maybe I should simply assume it's because my forearms muscles are not used to work that way. I suppose that with some more technique I should be able to reduce the strain, but sometimes I think you still have to rely on your forearms muscles.

Are there any stretches for the forearms? From my research all I could find indicates that you should extend your arm, palm up, drag your fingers downward. Is there anything else?

And should I do dumbbell reverse wrist curls? I read that it could help prevent injuries with tendons, etc... Dunno if it relates to my case, tho

For now what I'm doing is massaging, applying heat sometimes.
