The landmine squat is a lower-body exercise that uses 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. The landmine squat is similar in many ways to a goblet squat, but with slight differences due to the angle of the barbell. It can be trained in traditional muscle and strength-focused rep ranges or for higher reps.
The barbell angle encourages an upright torso and proper squat form
Front-loaded squatting makes it easier to squat deeply with good form
Can be loaded heavier than goblet squats
If getting the bar into position is difficult, start with it on a step or bench
