- Position suspension handles higher than arms' length above
floor. Sit on floor and grasp handles. Hang shoulders under handles
with arms straight, back and hips straight, with knees bent and
feet flat on floor.
- Pull body up so sides of chest make contact with handles
while keeping body straight. Return until arms are extended straight
and shoulders are stretched forward. Repeat.
- Handles should be positioned to allow for full arm extension,
no lower. Instead of mounting from a seated or lying position,
position can be assumed by stepping back with handles grasped
in each hand until arms are straight forward. While keeping arms
straight and shoulders back, step forward so body reclines back
and under suspension handles. Dismounting can be achieved by
walking backward until body is upright, minimizing contact with
ground. See Gravity
Vector for greater understanding of how body angle influences
resistance. Also known as Suspended Bent-knee Supine Row.
- Resistance can be reduced by raising handles or sitting on
floor and bending at hips. Also consider Suspended
Row in most upright position.
- This movement can be made more challenging by extending legs
and pivoting on heels.
