How to Do Plate Wrist Curls

  • Grab a weight plate with a pinching underhand grip and rest your forearm against your thigh, or alternatively against a bench.
  • Lower your hand towards the floor.
  • Reverse the motion by bending your wrist upwards.


Plate wrist curls train the muscles in the forearm that flexes (bends) your wrist and the muscles in your hand that makes a pinching grip. As an alternative, you can rest your forearm against a bench instead of your legs.
