The landmine setup is useful for a variety of standing exercises allowing you to produce horizontal and rotational forces, as opposed to just vertical forces. These are particularly useful for sports involving throwing, striking, or acceleration.

These exercises are not so gimmicky as to prevent you from utilising moderate loads and/or high speeds, so incorporate them before or after your fundamental strength/power exercises or use them in a circuit for fat loss:

– Use reps in the 10-15 region for fat loss/circuits.
– Use 3-5 sets of 3-6 for speed and power work, prioritising a fast, consistent bar speed over early fatigue.
