How To Do Barbell Behind Your Back Wrist Curls



The barbell wrist flex is an excellent way to strengthen the forearms. Today I'm going to show you how to do a variation on the basic barbell wrist flex exercise. But first I'm going to list some of this exercise's greatest benefits:

  • improved grip strength
  • improved flexibility
  • larger forearms
This is an exercise you should definitely add to your weight lifting routine.

How To Do Barbell Wrist Flex Behind Your Back

You'll need a barbell and weight plates for this exercise. Start with a warm up set. Select two five pound weight plates and secure them to opposite ends of the bar. Place the bar on a weight rack at waist level. Now take hold of the bar using an overhand grip. Now, while maintaining a fully upright posture, flex your wrists, curling them upward. Now return to the starting position by uncurling your wrists. That's one rep. Repeat this nine more times then stop.
Now add more weight and exercise for the desired number of repetitions.
If you perform this exercise on a regular basis, you'll notice increased grip strength which will have carryover benefits to other exercises e.g. deadlift and farmer's walk.
