If you are training or rehabbing baseball players I’m sure the Landmine Press and its multiple modifications are staples of your strength program. Since you’ve already got your athletes familiar with the Landmine and it’s benefits, here are a few variations that will be ideal for your baseball and softballers.
Landmine Floor Press
The Floor Press is a great supine pressing exercise for throwers because it prevents excessive anterior shoulder stress as the humerus contacts the floor prior to traveling behind the frontal plane of the body. It works well for training small groups or teams because it does not require a spotter and can be part of a circuit.
Landmine Pitching Deceleration
Decelerating the forward, downward and rotational forces of the pitching motion is essential for arm health. This drill will train the stride leg, core and posterior shoulder muscles necessary for efficient full body pitching deceleration.
Landmine Renegade Row
The Renegade Row is one of the toughest plank variations you’ll ever do. This is a fantastic way to train scapular and core stability while effectively loading the row for strength gains.
