- Position suspension handles higher than arms' length above
floor. Sit on floor and grasp handles. Position body supine hanging
from handles with arms straight, shoulders under handles, body
straight, and back of heels on floor.
- Pull body up so sides of chest make contact with handles
while keeping body straight. Return until arms are extended straight
and shoulders are stretched forward. Repeat.
- Fixed bar should be just high enough to allow arm to fully
extend. See Gravity
Vectors for greater understanding of body angle influences
resistance. Also known as Body Row or Supine Row.
- Resistance can be reduced by raising handles, sitting and
bending at hips, or bending at knee with feet flat on floor.
- This movement can be made more challenging by positioning
body in more horizontal position at height of movements. This
can be achieved by placing back of heels on elevated surface.
This exercise is typically performed without added resistance,
although additional weight can be placed on belly or pelvis.
