Inverted Rows

Type: Back
Inverted rows compliment the barbell chest press by working the opposing muscles in the back to create a balanced workout. Inverted rows are also known as, reverse pushups or reverse rows. You can perform the inverted row exercise using a smith machine bar set at the appropriate height. This exercise will help to improve posture by equalizing strength gains in your chest with those in your back. Below you'll find a video guide and step by step instructions that demonstrate the correct technique for inverted rows.

Inverted Rows Steps:

Step 1:
Take hold of a barbell secured on a squat rack or smith machine approximately 3 feet off the floor with an overhand grip, slightly wider than shoulder width.

Step 2:
Position your body underneath the bar, facing the ceiling.

Step 3:
Extend the arms fully and form a rigid straight line along the body from the neck down to the feet.

Step 4:
Your feet should be the only part of your body in contact with the floor and should be extended out in front of the bar.

Step 5:
Keeping your body rigid, bend at the elbows and with an explosive movement pull your chest up towards the bar

Step 6:
Return to the start by extending the elbows and repeat.
