Landmine Kneeling One Arm Shoulder Press

Landmine Kneeling One Arm Shoulder Press

The Landmine Kneeling One Arm Shoulder Press is a challenging and effective exercise that targets the muscles of the shoulders, triceps, and core. This exercise is performed with a landmine attachment, which is a weighted barbell anchored to the ground at one end. The kneeling position adds an extra element of stability and core engagement. To perform the Landmine Kneeling One Arm Shoulder Press, start by kneeling beside the landmine attachment. Hold the barbell with one hand at the weighted end, palm facing inward. Engage your core and maintain a tall posture throughout the exercise. From here, press the barbell straight overhead, extending your arm fully while maintaining control. Lower the weight back down to the starting position and repeat for the desired number of repetitions before switching sides. This exercise provides a few key benefits. Firstly, it helps to develop strength and stability in the shoulders, which is important for daily activities and sports performance. Secondly, the unilateral nature of the exercise helps to address any imbalances between the left and right sides of the body. It's important to use proper form and start with an appropriate weight for your fitness level. If you're new to this exercise, it's advisable to seek guidance from a certified fitness professional to ensure you perform it safely and effectively.
