Really? All top bodybuilders, at least in the old days, did grip and forearm work. Probably this was nothing more amazing the simple barbell flexion and extension exercises (e.g. wrist curls and reverse wrist curls, or a roller). No point having a huge upper arm if it draws attention to small forearms or calves. True bodybuilding must keep symmetry and proportion at the forefront.
