Straight-bar wrist roll-up

The straight-bar wrist roll-up is a movement targeting the muscles of the forearms and hands. It is normally performed in high reps, for time, or simply to failure as a burnout for the lower arms. If shoulder fatigue limits your ability to perform the movement, it can be done with the barbell resting in a rack.


  1. Builds hand and wrist strength
  2. Builds forearm size and strength
  3. Doesn't require unique equipment
  4. If grip strength is a limitation, lifting straps allow heavier loading
