Gym Landmine or Torsonator
Looking for the next piece of gym equipment to take your training to the next level? Look no further than the Gym Landmine, a versatile tool with endless capabilities.
Designed to make rotational barbell movements more efficient, the Landmine provides a pivot point to fix a barbell to. This affects the resistance of the Landmine, as any exercise becomes progressively easier as the load (plates) approaches the fulcrum (pivot) point.
You might be wondering how reducing load could be beneficial to your training. When paired with pulling exercises, where the strength profile dictates the top of the movement is most difficult, the Landmine can keep more constant tension on the muscle.
The added support of a fixed pivot point also provides a more structured way to exercise. For instance, in overhead pressing movements, a Landmine will allow for safer progressive overload than a traditional barbell OHP.
Thirdly, due to their design, Landmines are great for unilateral training. With the rise of functional fitness and the ever-importance of symmetry in bodybuilding, unilateral training is a staple in many athletes’ training regimens. And with a Landmine, you will find it much easier to address muscular imbalances safely.
Finally, another significant benefit of the Landmine is its ability to provide a platform to develop core strength through rotation. Any unilateral movement conducted on the Landmine will challenge your trunk to resist rotation. Still, many exercises (such as the landmine rotation) seek to develop strength through rotation. These movements are more applicable to athletes such as boxers looking to develop explosive power about the hips.
