Notes.

  • If you don’t have a landmine unit, position a bar into a corner and place a dumbbell on the corner end to ensure it stays put.

Technique.

  • Place an olympic bar into a landmine unit and place a two-handed row handle under it.
  • Pull the handle up towards your stomach in a smooth motion by squeezing your shoulder blades back, keeping your chest up and back straight. Pause at the top and slowly lower the weight back to the starting position.
