Inverted Row (on hips)

Underhand Inverted Row (high bar)

Classification

Utility: Basic or Auxiliary
Mechanics: Compound
Force: Pull

Instructions

Preparation

Lay on back with belly under fixed horizontal bar. Bend knees and position feet on floor. Grasp bar with wide overhand grip.

Execution

Keeping hips on floor and low back straight, pull torso up to bar. Return until arms are extended and shoulders are stretched forward. Repeat.

Comments

Fixed bar should be just high enough to allow arm to fully extend. See Gravity Vectors for greater understanding of how body angle influences resistance. Also known as Body Row on Hips or Supine Row on Hips.

Easier

Resistance can be reduced by positioning torso at angle with hips further back. Also try straight body version on high bar.

Harder

Exercise will be more challenging when performing standard Inverted Row where entire body is pulled up, pivoting on back of heels.
