Hammer curls work forearms. But suspension type lifts like Deadlifts, Shrugs, Farmers Walk are vastly superior.

Strong biceps are nessciary for physical safety. If you have weak biceps, that leaves a weak point that could leave you open for injury.

Don't be a bicep warrior, but hit 'em good with BB , DB, and hammer curls.
