Purpose of Exercise:
TO DEVELOP THE INSIDE (FLEXOR MUSCLES) OF THE FOREARMS.

Heavy Barbell Curls make the forearms work very hard but Wrist Curls allow you more to fully isolate these muscles.

Execution:
Take hold of a barbell with an underhand grip, hands close together. Scraddle 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.

Bend your wrists and lower the weight toward the floor. When you can’t lower the bar any further, carefully open your fingers a little bit and let the weight back up into your hands, contract the forearms, and lift the weight as high as you can without letting your forearms come up off the bench. Forearms, like calves, need a lot of stimulation to grow, so don’t be afraid to make them really burn.
