Suspended row

The suspended row is a bodyweight pulling exercise that focuses on the muscles of the middle and upper back, as well as the biceps. It can be trained in traditional muscle-building rep ranges or for higher reps. It can also work as part of a dynamic warm-up for a pressing or pulling-focused workout.


  1. Strengthens the lats (latissimus dorsi), biceps, rear delts, and rhomboids
  2. Safer to do for high reps than many free-weight row variations
  3. Easy to alter the angle to make the movement more or less difficult
  4. Can add pauses or control tempo to make more difficult
  5. Allows natural rotation of the hands unlike when using a barbell
