How To Do a Cable Wrist Curl
Here is what you need to do...
Type of Exercise: Strength Muscles worked- Forearms Type of movement- Isolation Equipment used- Low pulley cable- straight bar attachment
Place a flat bench about 2 feet from a low pulley cable. Attached a straight bar to the end of the pulley.
Sit down on the bench and grasp the straight bar with a grip shoulder width apart. Your grip should be in a palms up (supinated) position. Your forearms should be resting on your thighs and your wrists just over your knees with a slight stretch to grasp the bar
Start by curling your wrists up while exhaling. Make sure to feel the squeeze of the forearms at the top of the movement
Lower your wrists slowly down to the starting position. inhale at this point. Repeat this movement for a number of reps.
Difficulties people often experience or parts that need special attention to do it right.
Common ways to cheat/ cautions- The only movement should be in the wrists, do not lift your forearms off of your knees during this movement. Doing so eliminates tension from the wrists and onto the biceps/shoulders. Remember to squeeze the forearms at the top of the movement for optimal results- and lower the bar slowly for a good stretch.
