Overview

The barbell wrist curl is an exercise targeting the forearm muscles, particularly the flexor carpi radialis and flexor carpi ulnaris. It is performed by holding a barbell in one hand with your arm extended in front of you, then curling your wrist up and down. This exercise can be performed with either a pronated or supinated grip. The pronated grip is when your palm is facing down, and the supinated grip is when your palm is facing up. The barbell wrist curl can be done for a variety of repetitions and sets, depending on your fitness level and goals. It is a great exercise for strengthening the forearms and improving grip strength.
