- Grasp suspension handles and momentarily step back until
arms are extended forward and straight. While keeping arms straight
and shoulders back, step forward so body reclines back behind
suspension handles. Fold at hips onto heels, allowing rear end
to fall far back with arms and shoulders stretched forward.
- Drive hips forward until hips are straight, while keeping
arms and shoulders straight. Near top of motion, reach back with
arms over head and hyperextend spine. While keeping arms over
head, lower body with hips falling back down to starting position
- An alternative mount involves stepping back with suspension
handles in hands until arms are pulled forward about 45°
(give or take) from resting position. At this point, recline
body back, then fold at hips, allowing rear end to fall far back
with arms and shoulders stretched forward. Dismounting can be
achieved by walking backward until body is upright. Also known
as Suspended Body Row or Suspended Supine Row.
- Resistance is least when body is positioned upright at top
of exercise. Movement can be made easier with staggered foot

- This movement can be made more challenging by placing feet
more forward, thereby angling body back at initiation of movement.
