Blow Up Your Shoulders

Blow Up Your Shoulders

 

Overhead pressing builds big, powerful shoulders, but if you have shoulder or lower back pain, it may not be safe. The landmine press, however, is. The arc of the bar lessens the pressure on your joints, while the unilateral nature of it trains your core.

 

Quick Tip: Don’t try to press the bar straight overhead. Lean into the bar and press it out..

 

How To Do It:

Landmine Press

 

  1. Load a barbell into a landmine unit, or wedge it into a corner. Hold the opposite end by the sleeve at shoulder level and stand with feet shoulders width. You can also use a T-Bar Row.
  2. Press the bar up, keeping your tight. Don’t twist your torso.
