Elevated-Feet Inverted Row

The elevated-feet inverted row is a progression from a standard inverted row that builds upper body strength and lower body stability. Elevating the feet increases the resistance on the back, shoulders, biceps, and forearms.

    Lie on your back underneath a fixed horizontal bar. Grab the bar with your arms fully extended and your hands slightly wider than shoulder-width. Elevate your feet by placing the heels on a flat bench.

    Keeping your upper body straight, pull the upper body towards the bar. Hold for one second at the top and squeeze the back. Return until the arms are fully extended.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Don't let your hips sag. Maintain a straight line from your head to heels.
  • Don't let your shoulders move forward. Squeeze your shoulder blades together.
  • Don't let your back round. Keep your back flat and core tight.
