|Utility:||Basic or Auxiliary|
Lay on back with belly under fixed horizontal bar. Bend knees and position feet on floor. Grasp bar with wide overhand grip.
ExecutionKeeping hips on floor and low back straight, pull torso up to bar. Return until arms are extended and shoulders are stretched forward. Repeat.
Fixed bar should be just high enough to allow arm to fully extend. See Gravity Vectors for greater understanding of how body angle influences resistance. Also known as Body Row on Hips or Supine Row on Hips.
Resistance can be reduced by positioning torso at angle with hips further back. Also try straight body version on high bar.
Exercise will be more challenging when performing standard Inverted Row where entire body is pulled up, pivoting on back of heels.
