Inverted Row (high bar)

Instructions

Preparation

Stand facing arms length away from waist to head height horizontal bar. Grasp bar with wide overhand grip. Position body under bar with legs, hips and spine straight. Arms should be straight, approximately perpendicular to body. Heels should make contact with floor.

Execution

Keeping body straight, pull body up to bar. Return until arms are extended and shoulders are stretched forward. Repeat.

Comments

Bar height can be adjusted to vary resistance. See Gravity Vectors for greater understanding of body angle influences resistance. Also known as Body Row or Supine Row.

Easier

Resistance can be reduced by using higher bar or pivoting on hips with lower bar.

Harder

Lowering bar so body is closer to floor will make exercise more challenging.
