    i nearly broke my wrists doing reverse curls with and easy bar. i advise strongly that you use a barbell. do both of them, reverses work the outside, wrists work the inside.

    lower wrist region does not exists, it's not even a head to strenghted the wrists do exercises like, wrist curl, thors hammer, plate curls, reverse wrist curls, fist push ups, horizontal rotations, vertical rotations

    and reverse curls are bad for the brachiadialis it turns the muscle in a awkward way when performing the exercise, hammer curls are musch safer

    I didn't ask if they were the same thing.

    I asked if hammer curls & reverse BB curls were the same thing.

    Wrist Extensors are a stabilizer in reverse curls.

    My question was if A was better than B for developing the extensors.

    don't do reverse bbs imho


    also, you can't build wrist. wrist is almost all bone. you're stuck with it. for example, i had a 6 1/4'' wrist when i was 100pds, and at 225 i've got a 6.4'' wrist, wow, such a huge gain, lol
    Booo

    Just do both exercises so you don't have to worry. And they are not the same thing, wrist is in a different position.

    so if you would doubt between 2 different exercises you would just do both, come on man that's not the way to do it, reverse curls causes injuries to the brachiadialis hammer curls don't....

    Cool

    dude, i did reverse curls and my wrists got screwed up for months, they ar eonly jsut starting to recover and i have recently started up hammer curls and i'm already seeing results, they are the way to go

    i found it really hard to keep good form with reverse curls but with hammer curls they are much easier and u can really feel it in your forearms and bi's after a solid workout, Cheers

    Both are sufficient my friend. Any means of exercise will build up and strengthen muscle mass. But if you want a direct answer, I personally prefer hammer curls. Reverse curls are good, but hammer curls work both the brachioradialis, bracilis, & biceps brachii whilist the reverse curls mainly target the forearms. For maximum results, you can also include wrist curls & hand grippers.
