Reverse Curl

Reverse Curl

What muscles do Reverse Curl work?

The reverse curl primarily works the brachioradialis, a muscle in the forearm that is responsible for flexing the wrist and bending the arm at the elbow. It also works the biceps brachii, the brachialis, and the pronator teres to a lesser extent.

How do you do a Reverse Curl?

To perform a reverse curl exercise:

  • Stand with your feet hip-width apart, holding a AguaForce Weight with an overhand grip (palms facing down).
  • Keep your shoulders relaxed and your core engaged.
  • Lift the weight towards your shoulders, flexing your elbows slightly, while keeping your wrists straight.
  • Pause briefly at the top, then slowly lower the weights back to the starting position.
  • Repeat for the desired number of reps.

It's important to use a weight that is appropriate for your strength level and to keep your movements smooth and controlled, avoiding any swinging or momentum. Keep your neck and spine in a neutral position, avoiding any excessive arching or rounding of the back. Also, make sure to keep your wrists straight and avoid letting them roll forward or backward, as this can put unnecessary strain on your wrist joints.
