Step by Step Instructions For Wrist Roller

  1. Stand straight up and position your feet shoulder width apart.
  2. Grab a wrist roller with a pronated grip, meaning your palms should be facing down.
  3. Lift both arms slowly until they are fully extended and parallel to the floor in front of you.
  4. Ensure that the rope is not wrapped around the roller.
  5. Keep your entire body stationary except for your forearms.
  6. This is your starting position.
  7. Rotate one wrist at a time in an upward motion.
  8. Roll the rope around the roller to bring the weight up to the bar.
  9. Continue until the weight has reached the bar.
  10. Slowly rotate your wrist in a downward motion to lower the weight back down.
  11. Repeat this motion until the weight reaches the starting position.
  12. Complete the prescribed number of repetitions in your program.

Warm Up Tips

  1. Start by doing some wrist circles to warm up the joints and increase flexibility.
  2. Perform some wrist stretches by extending one arm straight out in front of you with the palm facing up. Use your other hand to gently pull back on the fingers to stretch the wrist. Hold for a few seconds and then switch sides.
  3. Do some forearm stretches by extending one arm straight out in front of you with the palm facing down. Use your other hand to gently pull back on the fingers to stretch the forearm. Hold for a few seconds and then switch sides.
  4. Hold a light dumbbell or weight plate in your hand and perform some wrist curls. Start with your forearm resting on a bench or your thigh, with your wrist hanging off the edge. Curl your wrist upwards and then slowly lower it back down. Repeat for a few reps and then switch sides.
  5. Grab the wrist roller with a pronated grip (palms facing down) and slowly lift both arms until they are fully extended and parallel to the floor in front of you. Hold this position for a few seconds to engage the muscles.
  6. Finally, perform some wrist rotations without the weight. Rotate one wrist at a time in an upward motion to mimic the movement of the exercise. This will help warm up the muscles and prepare them for the wrist roller exercise.

Wrist Roller Safety Tips

  1. Always start with a pronated grip (palms facing down) and stand straight with feet shoulder-width apart to maintain stability.
  2. Make sure the rope is not wrapped around the roller before starting the exercise.
  3. Keep your entire body stationary throughout the exercise, except for the forearms.
  4. Start with a weight that you can comfortably handle and gradually increase it as your strength improves.
  5. Perform the wrist rotation in a slow and controlled manner, avoiding any jerky or sudden movements.
  6. Avoid using excessive weight that may strain your wrists or forearms.
  7. Maintain proper form and technique throughout the exercise to prevent any injuries.
  8. If you experience any pain or discomfort in your wrists or forearms, stop the exercise and consult a healthcare professional.
  9. Do not rush through the exercise, take your time to focus on the movement and engage the targeted muscles.
  10. Follow the prescribed amount of repetitions in your program and avoid overdoing it.
