Coach's Tips

Inverted Row is a workout that is done a lot as an auxiliary workout for pull-ups. It may be a little challenging, but try to stay focused on keeping your breathings and forms right.

How to Inverted Row

Starting Position

1. Start by placing a barbell in a squat rack at chest height.

2. Lie underneath the bar and grab it with an overhand grip, slightly wider than shoulder-width apart.

3. Engage your core and glutes to create a straight line from your head to your heels.

Proper Form

1. Keeping your core and glutes engaged, pull your chest towards the bar.

2. Slowly lower yourself back to the starting position.

Breathing Technique

1. Exhale as you pull yourself up and inhale as you lower yourself back down.


1. Keep your shoulder blades pulled back and down throughout the movement.

2. Keep your elbows close to your body and avoid swinging or jerking your body.

3. If the movement is too challenging, reduce the range of motion.
