Starting PositionExecution

Starting Position

  • pick up a barbell with over hand grip (palms of the hands are turned to the body)
  • sit down on a weight bench or a chair, your back is straight
  • spread the legs about shoulder width
  • slightly bend your upper body forwards
  • rest the forearms on your thighs
  • the wrists emerge a bit and are still moveable
  • let the weight hang down with bent wrists

Correct Execution

  • guide the barbell up again by bending the wrists up as high as you can, do not gain momentum
  • the forearms stay onto your thighs and do not move
  • the motion only happens in the wrists
  • the rest of the body remains in starting position
  • hold the position for a moment
  • let the barbell sink down into the starting position again
  • repeat the exercise several times for an effective forearm workout
