- Place a barbell in a rack, high enough for you to be able to hang below it in straight arms, with your heels on the floor.
- Grip the bar with an overhand grip, slightly wider than shoulder-width apart.
- Inhale, and pull yourself up as high as you can, or until your chest touches the bar.
- Exhale, while lowering yourself back to the starting position with control.
The inverted row is a pulling exercise where you use your own bodyweight as resistance. You can make the exercise heavier by placing your feet on an elevation, or easier by raising the bar to a higher rack position.
A variation of this exercise is to do it with an underhand grip, which could increase the involvement of your arm flexors.
