Inverted Rows

The inverted row is a bodyweight exercise which targets your back, biceps, and forearms. It also strengthens your grip.

How to do it:

  1. Set a barbell bar around waist height on a power rack/cage or Smith machine.
  2. Position yourself under the bar and hold on to it with an overhand grip, arms shoulder-width apart. Plant the edge of your heels firmly on the ground. At this point, your body has formed a 30-degree angle while holding on to the bar. Refrain from locking out your elbow.
  3. On an exhale, pull yourself up until your chest is within inches of the bar. Pause for a second or two before returning to the starting position.
  4. Repeat to the desired number of repetitions.
