Inverted Rows

This is a great substitute for bent-over rows if you want to workout with bodyweight and/or cannot make it to a gym. Ways to make this exercise harder:
  1. Raise your feet by placing them on something like a bench
  2. Wear a weighted vest (as in the second video below)
  3. Ask your training partner to put a weight on your chest
  4. Any combination of these!
With Bar
This could be a barbell or smith machine bar in the gym (second video) or, as in the first video, any horizontal pole or bar at roughly the correct height.

Under Table
I started doing this version when I was in hotel rooms or at home. Here I am doing it in my apartment.
