A bodybuilding exercise that focuses on the forearms, with an emphasis on the wrist flexors. As long as you have a bar, you can do this exercise at home, otherwise it can be done at a fitness center. This exercise strengthens the arms and is great as a rehabilitation exercise following a wrist injury.
