Could you show what landmine exercises you use with athletes?

I like doing single-arm and two-arm clean and press exercises as part of a low-volume power circuit before games.

I'm a big fan of the landmine. I like the shoulder friendly. Angled press for those who can't get into full overhead position. Particularly for a lot of swimmers and overhead athletes. I work with. It's a nice tool for adding a little bit of stability with the anchor attachment to the floor. It just gives a little bit more stability to an otherwise, kind of maybe open chain or free weight exercise, and it just really versatile. You can do everything with it. So, we've got to press here. We had a row. We had a core work. Here's a squatting goblet squatting variation, again, giving a little bit of stability. Different line of pull Different stress. We've got reverse lunge to get into the single leg patterns and then the single leg deadlift here, which is really easy to learn the stability.

My favorite landmine exercise for athletes is the one arm press because you can do it in many different positions, loads and speeds. So we start with a seated position, you can then progress to at all kneeling position. And then into a half kneel position. Into standing a static stand with a drive. Split stance. And then explosive staggered stance. My favorite lower body exercise. We can also do this with a band if you want to actually create using a lighter band to create some velocity. And that could be used with any of the different positions favorite lower body exercise would be a single leg deadlift and using the bar there's very little balance needed allow you to drive some good weight or work.

I like using this exercise in a day that the athletes are going to have a lot of changes Direction and deceleration. In this moment, we're just going to a quick drop split squat into a hold because we want to train that fast eccentric. It's supposed to mimic what they're going to see on the field.
