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