Inverted Rows (aka Australian Pull Ups)

pull up

  1. Get below a sturdy bar. Or use a Smith Machine and set the bar at hip height.
  2. Get underneath the bar and position it below armpit level.
  3. Keep your knees bent and feet flat on the floor.
  4. Tighten your midsection and forcefully breathe out as you pull your chest up to the bar.
  5. Pause, then breathe in as you slowly open your elbows and return to the ground.
  6. Pull up for a 3-count, pause, then release downward for a 3-count.

It’s really that simple! If you are lacking the equipment, then look around your neighborhood for park or playground. I’ve used monkey bars for this pull up variation. Make no mistake about it, though this exercise is a digressed version of pull ups, it is still effective for all fitness levels.
