How to Do Plate Wrist Curls

  1. Grab a weight plate with a pinching underhand grip and rest your forearm against your thigh, or alternatively against a bench.
  2. Lower your hand towards the floor.
  3. 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.
