Starting PositionExecution

Starting Position

  • pick up a barbell with under hand grip (backs of the hands are turned to the body)
  • sit down on a weight bench or a chair
  • slightly bend your upper body forwards
  • keep the back straight
  • the knees are shoulder width apart, so that you can rest the forearms on them
  • the wrists emerge a bit and are still moveable

Correct Execution

  • let the barbell sink down by stretching the wrists down
  • you can additionally let the barbell roll down in your hands until you only hold them with the fingers
  • guide the barbell up again by bending the wrists up as high as you can, do not use momentum
  • the motion only happens in the wrists
  • the forearms stay onto your thighs and do not move
  • repeat the forearm exercise several times
