I know, the sound sucks, I forgot my mic at home.

Listen to the video (as best you can) and get all the good details. Landmine 180s (or whatever you want to call them) are great drills for working on both anti-rotation stability AND rotational force production. All about how you use it. However, given the higher level demands of this drill, if you just jump in and start slangin’ the weight, your back might not be so happy. The basic premise is breaking the exercise into parts so that are more manageable and easier to understand. As we become proficient with the movement, we increase the range, thereby increasing the demands of the exercise, until eventually we’re able to compete the full thing, moving the weight from side to side, going overhead.

Not here to scare you into thinking that if you move your spine it’s going to break into a million pieces. Far from it. Just trying to teach you how to load it in a more ideal way to help with performance and force transmission.

So, like the video says: use the core to resist rotation, then use the hips to rotate and generate force once you progress to that level. 3 sets of 1 million.

Like it? Repost it. Don’t understand it? Hit me up and get #Maestrofied.
