Hi, my name is Eric N. Quinn, and I am a personal trainer and life coach. We are here today at World Boxing Gym in Jersey City, New Jersey. Today we are going to show you some forearm barbell exercises. There are three different ways that we're going to use the arm today. The first one is going to be an isometric contraction. To do an isometric contraction you hold the bar, you rest your arms on your lap, keeping your wrists outside, just right outside your laps, your legs and you hold it there. This is isometric contraction. What it does is work on the forearm muscles faster than if you do any other exercises. From here, another exercise we can do is arm extensions. So what you do is just bring your wrist down and you bring it up, down and up and as with any exercises, just make sure you take your time. Okay, bring it down and up, down and up and the following exercise that we're going to do is going to be actually the opposite. Your arms, your hands, I'm sorry, are going to be facing up. So we're going to hold the bar the opposite way. This is forearm curls. You are holding the bar, your palms are facing up. You're holding the bar here. You let your wrists go down like this, bring your fist down and you curl up, down and up, down and up and just like with the other exercises you can also do an isometric contraction. The isometric contraction you're just doing this. Holding the weight on your hands and holding it there. It gives you great response just by doing this. This has been Eric N. Quinn, and that's how you perform forearm barbell exercises.
