Reverse curls on a machine is an isolation exercise that targets the brachioradialis muscle located in the forearm. This is achieved by using a cable pulley machine with a bar attachment that is designed for reverse curls. To perform this exercise, the athlete must stand with their feet shoulder-width apart and grasp the bar with an underhand grip, keeping their elbows and upper arms stationary. The bar is then lifted towards the chest until the forearm is fully contracted before slowly lowering it to the starting position. Reverse curls on a machine is a great exercise for people who want to build forearm strength and size. It is often used as a complementary exercise to other upper body workouts, such as bicep curls or chin-ups. By targeting the brachioradialis muscle, reverse curls on a machine can help improve grip strength and increase overall arm definition. Beginners are advised to start with a lighter weight and focus on proper form to avoid injury, while more advanced athletes can progressively add weight over time.
