Landmine exercises: an easy, great alternative for reducing impact
I've recently found a very interesting setup for compound movements I thought I'd share with you: the landmine.

This setup allows you to adapt traditional lifts and perform them in a way that reduces joint impacts and is much easier to learn than olympic lifts.

I'm sure many of you already know this setup, but I think it could be great for many people with back issues, flexibility issues or injuries.

One of the beauties of the landmine variation is that you can adapt so many great exercises - like the squat, deadlift, RDL, overhead press, rows, and many more -, target multiple body parts and even superset exercises.

Landmines are very easy to setup: while some people use a piece of metal with an axis (aka the landmine), you can just as well support one end of the bar on the corner of a wall and it works just as great. For more stability, I usually put some ankle weights or a small dumbell on top of that end.

This is gold.

The point of modern propaganda isn't only to misinform or push an agenda. It is to exhaust your critical thinking, to annihilate truth.

Hmm...never knew what they were called. Yes, I did these a bit about a year ago.

Thanks for reminding me of these. I just might do some today for my shoulder workout. I'm big into basic lifts (presses, squats, barbells, etc), but these are great to work some sweat in and get the heart pumping.

I did these today for part of my push day. Added them to my push day arsenal a few months ago.... good exercise.
