How to perform
Reverse Curl - Starting position
Reverse Curl - Muscle Under Tension
Set up & Starting position (standing or seated)
Hold the weight at shoulder width with a pronated (overhand) grip and elbows touching the side of the torso.
While keeping your elbows still, curl the weight toward your shoulders by moving your forearms toward your biceps. Keep lifting until the tops of your forearms make forceful contact with your biceps.
Isometric hold (optional) - Hold the contraction for a moment.
Lower the weight to the starting position and repeat the movement.
Reverse Curl emphasizes the forearm extensors and is particularly effective in building up the brachialis and brachioradialis muscles in order to make your arms look wider. Using a thumbless grip will prevent the bar from resting on your thumb and force your brachioradialis to work even harder.
