What exercise accomplishes:
Barbell wrist curls develop the inside (flexor
muscles) of the forearms.
Heavy Barbell Curls make the forearms work Big time, but Wrist Curls allow you
to fully concentrate on these muscles.
Hold a barbell with an
underhand grip, hands close to each ether. Sit on a bench with your forearms resting on the bench but with your wrists and hands
hanging over the end, elbows and wrists the same distance apart. Lock your knees in against your
elbows to stabilize them. (b) Bend your wrists and lower the weight toward the
floor. When you can't lower
the bar any farther, carefully open your fingers a little bit and let the weight
roll down out of the
palms of your hands. Roll the weight back up into your hands, then use the
forearms, and lift
the weight as high as you can without letting your forearms come up off the
are similar to calves, they need a lot of stimulation to grow, so really make
them burn if you want your arms to look like Popeye's.
