To setup yourself for the Behind-the-Back Wrist Curl exercise first rack a barbell just below waist height and face away from the bar. Turn your palms toward the bar (i.e., pronate them), back yourself into the bar to grab it, brace your core, and unrack the barbell. The movement begins with your wrist in line with your forearm (i.e., straight), from which you perform a concentric wrist flexion.
