Body Weight Row

As there been any study done using how much of your body weight are you using when you are doing a body weight row ?

depends on the angle. Anywhere between 50-90% of it.

which angle corresponds to 50% and which to 90

The higher you put your feet, the more weight you lift.

There has been research on the pushup, which uses 70% of your BW in the top position and 75% on the bottom position…

assuming you are doing the inverted rows in the same body position as a pushup with legs on the floor (only you would be facing up) the inverted uses also between 70% and 75% of your BW.

of course weight distribution differs from 1 person to another, these are general percentages.
