Wrist Curl Exercise

Essential Exercise

It is important for just about everyone that we keep our wrists strong and stable. We use it for so very many things. If you have a job at a computer or other machine requiring much hand use, you know just how important the wrist is! Keep it strong by performing this humble exercise a few times a week.

Keep your hands and wrists strong, nimble, and free from pains and strains. Doing so is important for many every day tasks.

Repetitive use of the wrist places too much stress on them and can lead to a number of different injuries, like tendonitis, bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc. They all have similar symptoms, but they are all aggravated by wrist overuse.

How to perform The Wrist Curl Exercise:

  1. Grab a bar with an underhand grip and kneel next to a bench with your forearms lying across the pad and your hands hanging off the side.
  2. Curl your hands toward your forearms as far as you can.
  3. Pause, and then slowly lower the bar to the starting position.
