    Landmine press, my new favorite press.

    Primal Fuel
    I was supposed to do 50kg OHP the other day, but my shoulder felt a bit off, so I tried an exercise i've been wanting to do for a whole. The Landmine press, which for those of you who don't know, it's basically a 1 arm barbell press with one end of the bar either shoved into the corner of a gym or into a plate that has a barbell socket.

    Has anyone else done/had experience in this exercise?

    Im thinking on occasionally replacing it with the OHP, maybe in a 4 week on/off cycle.

    Yup, these are awesome. I used to exclusively do them for presses before my shoulder got better.

    NOTR does a lot of his overhead pressing this way, if I'm not mistaken.

    Then again, I'm often mistaken.

    I love the idea of landmine exercises but I'm still trying to get my basics down(just started lifting) but they are on my to try list.

    That's awesome. Im waiting for my shoulder to get better, it's improving.

    Is there a way to figure out the difference in weight between the original OHP and what you should be putting on the bar with the land mine press?

    I thought it would be half weight but it was a lot more than what I expected.

    Hard to calculate, obviously the steeper the angle the less the true resistance.

    i'm a big fan of them. i'm also a big fan of 1 arm db presses. my busted up shoulders feel a whole lot better doing these instead of doing a standard bb press. lately I've been doing handstand pushups instead

    Whats a day in the life of Not On The Rugs workout look like? exercises, sets and reps.
    Your busted up broken ass body is an inspiration.

    Also, one element of hand stands I'm not quite sure of is are you supposed to set your shoulders down and back when holding the hand stand? I was going to throw them in as a stability exercise but I wasn't sure how I was supposed to set my shoulders.

    Shrug your shoulders *up (actually down, in a handstand position) at the top of the movement.

    Yeah, I tell people to grow 3 inches taller in a handstand. And keep your damn head in!
