Dumbbell Wrist Inversions

Dumbbells provide a variety of different exercises you can perform for the wrist muscles. Aim to work in all directions to fully target all the movements that your wrist makes.

This exercise can be performed with either dumbbells, a single cable attachment or resistance band, in either a standing, seated or ideally kneeling over a bench position, with your palms facing up or down.

TURN YOUR WRIST SMOOTHLY INWARDS SMOOTHLY ROTATE THE WRIST OUTWARDS

With your forearms fixed, smoothly turn your hands inwards and outwards as far as they will comfortably turn.

You may also decide to rest your forearms on their sides, little finger on the bottom, palms facing each other, and bring the wrists inwards.

Begin this exercise with a light weight, aiming to establish good technique and gradually building up strength.

Its a safer option to build up the number of repetitions and sets that you perform rather than making an increase in weight, as you will likely find that your wrists are weak and the weight your using generally light.
