How to Do the Inverted Row

1. Set a bar in a power rack at about hip height. Hang from the bar with hands outside shoulder width and legs extended on the floor.

2. Brace your abs and draw your shoulder blades together as you pull up to the bar until your back is fully contracted.

QUICK TIP: For an even greater core challenge, raise one foot off the floor, or elevate both feet on a platform.

Little-known fact: The lats are part of your core, too. They help stabilize your spine just like the muscles of the lower back. When you train them to brace your body while pulling (their main function), you speed up back and core development.
