Tip: Overhead Barbell Wrist Roller

The bench press and the overhead press require strong forearms and stable wrists. This bodyweight exercise helps with both.

Forearm development is extremely important for stabilizing heavy bench press attempts. The wrist roller is one of the best ways to develop the forearm muscles.

This is a variation of the normal wrist roller using a barbell and the lifter’s body weight. Set up a barbell inside a power rack and roll it up and down on the pins by flexing or extending the wrists. This is an extremely advanced exercise that will blow up the forearms!
