Wrist Barbell Bench Curl

Many gym goers often find that they can't lift a weight correctly, due to poor wrist strength, however very few people actually train their wrists, which is why many a barbell has been dropped during a deadlift exercise.

This exercise can be performed either with dumbbells - barbell - EZ bar or cable / resistance band.


Rest your forearms on a flat bench, with your palms facing upwards, keeping your wrists on the edge of the bench.

Aim to adopt a position that enables you to have your forearms horizontal to the floor, whilst you smoothly lower your hand down as far as possible, prior to lifting the weight / resistance, taking your hands towards your shoulders.
