Barbell Wrist Extension

Barbell wrist extensions are the simplest way to train wrist extension strength for wrist stability and health and to balance wrist flexor strength.
With a barbell in a pronated grip, squat partially and rest your forearms on your thighs at an approximately 45-degree angle. Flex the wrists completely, then lift them into full extension with a controlled tempo to minimize momentum. Return to flexion under control.
Barbell wrist extensions strengthen wrist extension for general wrist health and stability and balance the usually dominant wrist flexors.
Do 2-3 sets of 10-30 reps at the end of a training session 1-3 days/week.
