    Upside Down pull Up benefits?

    Hey all I'm trying out new variations of pull ups/chin ups and I've come across an upside down pull up and wondered if there are any added benefits (if any) to just doing regular pull ups. Do upside down pull ups work a different muscle group like Tri's instead of Bi's with chin ups? There pretty easy to do I could do about 20 of them but I felt them a lot more compared to chin ups. What do you think? I'll post a picture for those that haven't seen it. It's probably pretty common to some. But I've never seen it before.

    Cheers for any input.

    basically just turns a pullup into a rowing motion...so you could just row....and not risk falling and snapping your neck.

    but to answer your question i dont see any real benefit to doing those over just progressing heavier and heavier with pullups.

    I use to do those too but in a supinated grip, but then I got bored of them. I prefer regular pull ups with different grips, one arm chins, and muscle ups of course (if you can't nail those yet then I suggest you start learning bruh)

    It might hit the traps a little harder.

    In fact, I think you can do a "shrug" from the bar in the upside down position - like an alternative to barbell shrugs. I've never tried them though; I have a concrete floor under my bar and falling on my head doesn't seem too appealing.

    Edit: I'm not a teen - accidentally posted in this forum. You can disregard my advice if you don't want it from somebody older.

    Look up "Front Lever Rows". That's how they're meant to be done. Put your knees in front of the bar, so you have a bigger range of motion.
