Reverse Wrist Curls

Sit with the forearms resting on the thighs or on a bench and grasp the bar with an overhand grip and keep the wrists relaxed:

• Raise the hands by extending at the wrists.

This exercise contracts the extensor carpi radialis longus and brevis, extensor digitorum, extensor digiti minimi, as well as the extensor carpi ulnaris.

Comment: This exercise strengthens the wrists, which are often vulnerable because of weak wrist extensors.
