Exercise Of The Week–Kneeling, One Arm Landmine Press

ACTIVITY GOAL:
Improve vertical pressing strength. Increase core and shoulder stability.

OBJECTIVE:
Strengthen the shoulders, triceps, abdominals, and obliques. Increase neurological control of shoulder girdle and core musculature.

STARTING POSITION:
Kneel down (one knee with one foot planted) at the end of the barbell (positioned in landmine). Pick up the end of the barbell with the hand on the same side as the knee that is down. Your hand should almost be touching your shoulder at the start.

PROCEDURE:
Firmly grasp the end of the barbell, brace your core (by inhaling and expanding your abdomen) and extend your arm pressing the bar away. Repeat on the other side.

COMMON MISTAKES:
Starting with your hand/end of the barbell too far away from your shoulder. Not extending your arm all the way. Not bracing the core. Allowing flexion or extension of the hip joint.
