Thoughts on the landmine press? Posted on February 24, 2023 by Anonymous Thoughts on the landmine press?
thoughts on killing yourself?
Why are you like this?
Lack of pussy
that would require a real landmine, this thread about the barbell kind retard
6 months of SS+GOMAD before you try these
Fuck off gains goblin.
If you think that way just do renegade rows nobody is stopping you.
Very explosive exercise.
there are better ways to hit delts and better ways to hit chest
it's great if your gym has the kind of landmine attachment you hook up to a squat rack so you can put it high enough to do the exercise standing
if it's the kind in your gif it kinda sucks imo cuz lifting while kneeling feels awkward. But just try it, maybe you won't mind the kneeling
Landmine exercises in general are good if you have a minimalistic home gym, you can do a lot with a landmine attachment (or simply placing a towel on the corner of your room and jamming the barbell into it). Presses, Rows, Squats, Lunges etc etc.
May not be as effective as regular exercises but it's an option with those who lack options.
It's pretty bad. Just do pushups if you have no bench.
Using the attachment for t-bar rows however is unfathomably based.
>Just do pushups if you have no bench
floor press, mate
idk never really liked it. It's like half the ROM of a pushup and doesn't feel as natural.
Retarded. Why would you want to shift the emphasis even more to the front delts and tris?
one of my fave gym equipment fixtures esp for alternating one-armed shoulder / military press and for doing side-to-side russian twist for core... not super common or popular but definitely fave
>side-to-side russian twist for core...
Based as fuck excersize. These and one hand farmers carries are all I do with specific core focus in mind now.
These are obviously a great chest exercise if you do them right.
Fookin luv it m8.
1-H, 2-H... absolutely based exercise. Great serratus builder, too.
gimmicky fad shit. stop trying to reinvent the wheel. how much are you even going to be able to max load this?
Don't get me wrong every exercise has its purpose. I am all for having every variation of exercises in the playbook.
>how much are you even going to be able to max load this?
you have a giant lever
Seems like it would be awful for your knees. Even with padding your body is in no way designed for lifting from that position.
idk, will try the meadows row soon enough.
Are these meant to be performed suicide grip style? My hands engulf each other, making the entire thing incredibly awkward to perform, and I've never seen an attachment that just slides over the end to solely increase the collar diameter.
Absolutely based (the standing version) and so much better than the OHP. There's a reason why you never see pro athletes doing OHP meme garbage but all of them do landmine work. People acting like it's some obscure alt-lift have never trained in a sport focused environment. In the real world, the OHP is a niche lift only gymcels and oly lifters do whereas landmine press (mostly single arm), landmine twist, landmine punch, landmine lunges etc are universal.

because their shoulder gurdles are rekt from excessive bench press so they lack shoulder mobility. and wrist mobility to get into a proper front squat. not saying they need to get the ability to do these things their sport specific performance is what is important but its not the exercise that is the problem it is often overhead mobility and flexibility and their isn't much point for them to work up to a proper shoulder press form since they can just do variations like landmine.
generally i try to avoid pressing landmines
