Barbell Wrist Curls is a strength training exercise designed to isolate and target the forearm muscles. This exercise involves gripping a barbell with an underhand grip while seated at a weight bench or standing. The lifter should keep the elbows stationary and curl the weight up by flexing the wrists. This movement targets the muscles on the extensor side of the forearms, including the brachioradialis, extensor carpi radialis longus, and extensor carpi radialis brevis. These muscles are responsible for wrist extension and stability. Barbell Wrist Curls can help athletes to develop a stronger grip for lifting and other activities that require hand and forearm strength. The exercise can also aid in injury prevention by strengthening the muscles that support the wrist joint. Barbell Wrist Curls can be performed with a variety of grip widths and variations, such as Zottman curls, to target different forearm muscles. This exercise can also be done using dumbbells instead of a barbell.
