Dumbbell Wrist Curl – Flexion

The wrist curl is a weight training exercise for developing the wrist flexor muscles of the forearm. It is therefore an isolation exercise. Ideally, it should be done in combination with the “reverse wrist curl” (also called wrist extension) to ensure equal development of the wrist flexor and wrist extensor muscles.

Holding a dumbbell in each hand, sit down and rest your elbows and forearms on your thighs, with your palms facing the ceiling. Elbows should be bent to about 90-degrees and the dumbbells/hands should hang freely. Wrists are in line with the forearms.

Inhale and slowly bend at the wrist so that the dumbbells to move toward the floor.

Exhale and slowly roll your wrists to pull the weight up and return the dumbbells to the starting position.

  1. Most people forget about the wrist exercises. I never see anyone at my gym doing any, I think people don’t see the benefits of it, or maybe people just don’t care. I, personally will start doing some wrist exercises ; such as this one. a strong wrist can do many things 🙂

    Good post Chape.

      1. My point exactly!
        “stronger wrist hold bigger dumbbells”.
        I think that now that you have made people more aware again, you will have people working on their wrist! yay!
