Smith Machine Seated Wrist Curl Instructions

  1. Set up for the Smith Machine Seated Wrist Curl by getting a flat bench or short stool and placing it in front of a smith machine.
  2. Lower the bar to around knee height and add weights to either side.
  3. Sit on the end of the bench facing the smith machine with your forearms resting on your quads, palms facing up.
  4. Grasp the bar and take the weight off the hooks. Allow the bar to lower as much as possible. This is the starting point for the exercise.

  6. Squeeze your forearms, and then lower the bar back down.
  7. Repeat for desired reps.
