Reverse barbell curls is a weight training exercise that is similar to the traditional barbell curl, but it targets the forearms more effectively. To do this exercise, you will need a barbell loaded with weights. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and grab the bar with an overhand grip. Your hands should be shoulder-width apart or slightly wider. Keep your elbows close to your body and curl the barbell up towards your chest. As you lift the barbell, keep your wrists straight and your palms facing down. Pause for a second at the top of the movement and then slowly lower the barbell back down to the starting position. Reverse barbell curls can be done with different weights and repetitions depending on your fitness level and goals. For beginners, it is recommended to start with lighter weights and focus on proper form before increasing the weight. This exercise can help strengthen the forearm muscles, improve grip strength, and reduce the risk of wrist injuries. It is also a good exercise to include in your arm workout routine, as it can help develop bigger and more defined forearms.
