How To Perform the Wrist Curl

  1. Sit on a bench and hold a dumbbell or barbell with an underhand grip, resting your forearms on your thighs.
  2. Your wrists should extend just beyond your knees, allowing free movement.
  3. Slowly curl your wrists upward, lifting the weight and flexing your forearms.
  4. Pause for a moment at the top of the movement, feeling the contraction in your forearms.
  5. Gradually lower the weight back to the starting position with controlled motion.
  6. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions, maintaining proper form throughout.

  • Start with lighter weights to master the form and gradually increase the load.
  • Ensure a full range of motion by fully flexing and extending your wrists during each repetition.
