Seated Reverse Barbell Wrist Curls


  • This movement is performed with a barbell in a seated position.
  • Sit on a bench, leaving enough room to place your arms on. Bend forward slightly.
  • Grasp the barbell with an overhand grip. Place your hands very close together matched by your elbows. Your arms should be flat on the bench with your hands at the edge so they are able to bend down. First, bend your wrist to allow for the weight to hang down, you will feel a stretch. Next, roll the weight up until your upper forearm contracts.
  • Slowly lower the weight back to a fully extended position. Repeat the movement.


  • When you contract the muscle at the top, lift you arms slightly towards you to get a greater contraction.
