High Inverted Row Instructions

  1. The high inverted row is a variation of the inverted row. Set up for the inverted row by lowering the bar on the smith machine and positioning yourself under the bar.
  2. Grasp the bar with arms slightly wider than shoulder width.
  3. Put your feet out in front of you so that your upper chest is directly under the bar.
  4. Keep your body straight and pull yourself up as far as possible. The bar should come to around upper chest/neck height.
  5. Pause, and then slowly lower your self  back to the starting position.

Exercise Tips:

  1. Keep your body straight throughout the exercise.
  2. Pause at the top of the movement and squeeze your shoulder blades together.
  3. Lower yourself slowly - don't allow your body to drop.
