Slowly lower the bar to the floor by bending your wrists backwards. Let the bar slowly roll down in your grip against your fingers. Hold for a few seconds in the bottom position before your fingers grab the bar and then lift it up again by bending your wrists. You should push it all the way up so that your forearms get a proper pressure. This only happens at the end of the movement, in the beginning it is mainly your grip that is trained.
