Starting PositionExecution

Starting Position

  • hold a dumbbell in each of your hands
  • sit down onto a weight bench or a chair
  • the knees are hip width apart
  • hold the back straight, tilt the upper body forwards a bit
  • rest your forearms onto your thighs, so that the wrists are still moveable - the palms of the hands are turned up
  • hand and forearm are in a line until now

Correct Execution

  • let the dumbbells sink down by stretching the wrist joints
  • additionally you can let the weights roll down in your hands
  • the rest of the body is still, the motion only happens in the wrist
  • bring the dumbbells up again as high as you can by bending the wrists up
  • repeat the forearm exercise several times
