Landmine twist

The landmine twist is a rotational abdominal movement performed using an angled barbell anchored at floor level in a landmine device. It can also be performed by sticking a barbell in the corner of a room, preferably in a towel to protect the walls. It targets the deep muscles of the core, including both the obliques and the transversus abdominis. It can be done fast or slow, for time or reps, either in traditional muscle-focused rep ranges such as 8-12 reps per side or for higher rep ranges.


  1. Maximizes force transfer through the legs, core, and arms
  2. Powerful rotational core training
  3. Trains coordination and power simultaneously
