One of my athletes doesn't have access to a cable or other seated rowing machine and needed an alternative exercise. He does have access to a Smith Machine.

 

The solution?

 

Inverted row.

 

I tried this exercise yesterday and it is TOUGH! Though I can do seated rows all day long, I was unable to lift myself from the floor to touch the bar even once. And, I could only do five reps getting my torso about six inches from the bar.

 

My first goal is to be able to do five consecutive movements, with a solidly planked body, touching my torso to the bar.

 

Anyone else tried this?
