Landmine Single Leg RDL/Reverse Lunge Combo

I want to share a cool landmine exercise variation that I’ve been using more recently with some of my clients that I think you’ll like. It’s a single leg RDL/reverse lunge combo. Do one single leg RDL, then one reverse, then another single leg RDL, then another reverse, yada yada yada for however many reps you’re trying to do. Like this: This isn’t my idea. I first tried out this exercise combo after my friend Eric Cressey shared it three years ago in this article when he showed it using dumbbells. I liked it then, but in the past few [...]

With that in mind, my good friends Eric Cressey and Mike Reinold just released a great new product called Function Stability Training for the Upper Body. From the name, you can probably guess what it’s about. Both Eric and Mike are two guys that I have a ton of respect for and try to learn from. That’s not just hollow words either.

2 Great Combo Exercises

Today’s post is going to be short because I’m on my way to work, but I want to share two cool exercises with you that I’ve been using recently that I think you might really like. They both combine two of my favorite exercises—the rear foot elevated split squat and the landmine press—so it makes sense I’d like them. Also as per usual with me, I have terribly boring names for both of them, and I’m open to suggestions. 1. Rear Foot Elevated Split Squat Iso Hold/ Landmine Press Combo Set up a bench perpendicular to the landmine and get [...]
