Using the thought that the weight should be attached

to the limb next to what muscle is being worked, then

it is not necessary for the hand to be open (plate curls)

for the wrist to receive the most direct work. The open

hand in plate curls puts stress on the finger joints and on

the thumb- not bad, just off target if you want to isolate

the wrist.

Wrist curls are the most direct, specific, way to target

the wrist, in my opinion.

Sledge hammers & plate curls r great, & even wrist plate curls work.I use a 25 & a 35, the brick lift really works yer wrist's & yer crush'n grip also.GO 4 IT!!!!!

What i find a really effective wrist exercise is pinch gripping one of my 75 lb plates in a pinch grip using both hands and then sit on the edge of the bench and perform full range wrist curls.These really hit the entire wrist section.I use a variety of widths and lengths and i use block weights also.It combines two exercises in one.

Chris,

I do the exact exercise with the exact weight! Wait,

you are using 75 and I am using 7.5. Oops.

Seriously, is you 75 pound plate unlipped, except perhaps

for a slight lip about 3" from the rim?

Chris,

I would be very interested in knowing the make of these plates - I've seen 20 kilo, 50lb, 25 kilo, 30 kilo, 100lb and 50 kilo plates - but never 75lb!

Thanks in advance

Sorry for the confusion, these are plates that i had made for me in the steelworks where i work.One of the benefits of my occupation !!

By the way yesterday i came across a solid round bar about 3 inches thick and around 10feet long, i didn't try to pick it up but i'm going back for it on Sunday.Any ideas of it's weight ?

Chris, assuming an average density of steel of 7850kg/cubic meter (which I found on the web), I think the bar should weigh approximately 108.2kg or around 238lbs.

Nice chunk of metal.......have fun with it.
