Landmine Row


  1. landmine_row_a
    Load one side of a barbell with weight, place the other end of the bar on the floor and secure it in a corner of the gym. Straddle the bar near the plate-loaded side, with your feet spaced shoulder-width apart, and bend over and close-grip under the plate. Keep your back arched and tight, your head in a neutral position and your knees slightly bent. This is your starting position.
  2. landmine_row_pos_b
    Keeping your abs tight, pull the bar toward your chest, squeezing your shoulder blades together at the top. Hold for a brief count, then slowly lower the bar along the same path until you feel a good stretch in your back muscles and your arms are near full extension. Stop just short of allowing the weight to touch the floor. That's one rep.
