Exercise The Right Way – The Wrist Curl

Other articles in this series looked at a number of exercises, mainly from the perspective of developing a comprehensive muscle building program. S ometimes we take things for granted, especially when it comes to performing the basic exercises that constitute the core of most bodybuilders’ training regimes.
It is useful, therefore, to describe in detail the processes involved in actually doing these exercises. Thi s will help beginners to start out using the correct techniques before moving on to potentially more dangerous heavy weights. If i t also helps more experienced lifters to redress some of the little faults that have almost imperceptibly crept in over the years, all the better.
