Tips for Inverted Rows

  • The higher up the bar is from the ground, the easier the exercise will be
  • The exercise will be tougher if you have your legs fully extended
  • The more you have the bar placed over your chest, the more your lats will take the lift. If, on the other hand, you move your body forward so that your face is under the bar, your trapezius will take the load more.
  • Pull the shoulder blades together before bending the arms
  • Pull yourself up slowly and tense your muscles on the way back
  • A supine grip (palm facing you) engages your biceps more
  • As a variation that is more gentle on your shoulders, use the TRX straps
