Inverted rows build horizontal pulling strength. The intensity of the exercise can be easily adjusted making it a great exercise for beginners – the more upright your body is the easier it is.
(Good starting point) (More advanced)
Grab the rings and lean back – squeeze your glutes and brace your core keeping your body in a straight line. Begin by packing your shoulders- this creates tension through the shoulder joint and prepares your body to pull.
Pull yourself towards the rings squeezing your shoulder blades together as you get to your top position – this will prevent dumping the shoulder forward into a bad position.
(Tipped forward) (Pulled back – good)
Avoid over extending your spine at the top, we want the movement coming from our arms and shoulder, not from our low back. Maintain a neutral spine while you lower yourself to the start position.
