1/2 Kneeling Landmine Press

1/2 Kneeling Landmine Press

The 1/2 Kneeling Landmine Press is an ideal alternative to overhead pressing, especially for anyone who struggles with maintaining neutral spinal posture. When done correctly it promotes good upward rotation of the scapula and lumbopelvic/anterior core control. To perform the Landmine Press correctly keep these cues in mind:

-Squeeze your abs and the glute on the pressing side to stabilize the hips and lumbar spine

-Start with some space between the elbow and the side, then press the bar up in a "Half U" pattern

-Keep a neutral "double chin" position throughout the movement

-Finish with the bicep just in front of the ear
