Inverted barbell row

STRENGTH

Preparation:

  1. Lie under the bar so that the bar is at mid-chest level.
  2. Tighten the belly by drawing the navel in towards the spine and contract the pelvic floor.
  3. Choose the appropriate grip (under or overhand).

 

How to Do:

  1. Perform row and lift the body towards the bar.
  2. The bar should meet the mid-chest.
  3. Lower slowly to full extension.

 

Other Notes: AVOID retracting the scapula before pulling yourself up, it should be a smooth action through the scapulo-thoracic joint as you lift yourself towards the bar.
