Elevanted Inverted Row between 3 Chairs

Elevanted Inverted Row between 3 Chairs

The Elevated Inverted Row between 3 Chairs is a challenging and effective upper body exercise that targets the muscles in your back, shoulders, and arms. This exercise is a modification of the traditional inverted row and adds an extra level of difficulty by elevating your feet. To perform this exercise, you will need three sturdy chairs of the same height. Start by placing the chairs in a straight line, with about two to three feet of space between them. Sit on the floor facing the chairs and place your hands on the edges of the chairs, gripping them firmly. Next, carefully walk your feet forward and lift your hips off the ground, so your body forms a straight line from head to toe. Your weight should be supported by your hands and your heels. This is your starting position. From here, engage your core and pull your chest towards the chairs while keeping your body straight. Imagine squeezing your shoulder blades together as you pull yourself up. Pause for a moment at the top and then slowly lower yourself back down to the starting position. To increase the intensity of this exercise, you can straighten your legs and elevate your feet on a higher surface, such as a bench or a step. This will require greater strength and stability, providing an additional challenge for your upper body muscles. Remember to focus on maintaining proper form throughout the exercise. Keep your core tight, shoulders pulled back, and avoid any excessive swinging or arching of the back. Start with a few sets of 8-10 repetitions and gradually increase as you get stronger. The Elevated Inverted Row between 3 Chairs is an effective and convenient exercise that can be done at home or in the gym. It helps to improve upper body strength, posture, and stability. Incorporate this exercise into your routine for a well-rounded and challenging upper body workout.


  • Choose three sturdy chairs and place them side by side with their backs facing out.
  • Ensure that the chairs are close enough to each other so that you can reach across and grip the edges of two chairs with your hands.
  • Sit down on the floor facing the chair backs and place your feet on the edge of the third chair, with your knees bent and feet flat on the ground.
  • Reach across and grip the edges of the two chairs with your palms facing inward and your fingers wrapped around the edges.
  • Engage your core muscles and glutes to lift your hips off the ground, creating a straight line from your head to your knees.
  • Pull your body towards the chairs by retracting your shoulder blades and bending your elbows, keeping them close to your sides.
  • Continue pulling until your chest reaches or almost reaches the level of the chair backs, and pause briefly in this contracted position.
  • Slowly lower your body back down to the starting position by straightening your arms and extending your shoulder blades.
  • Repeat the movement for the prescribed number of repetitions.
  • Remember to maintain proper form throughout the exercise, keeping your body straight and avoiding any swinging or excessive movement.
