This exercise is a classic forearm muscle-building exercise. The key to executing this movement properly is not allowing your forearms to wobble about while on top of your legs. You have to find a way to keep your forearms as fixed as possible when performing this movement. Thus, spend a few moments adjusting your arms properly on your legs and do a few practice reps with a light barbell to find that perfect comfort zone.

Furthermore, this exercise requires a strong grip. If you feel that the barbell is slipping out of your palms you can either use a lighter barbell or use wrists straps that will help you have a more secure grip on the bar.
