Training at a small gym that isn’t wealthy in equipment requires a little creativity to get things done. When barbells aren’t abundant we make due.
Enter the band landmine
This exercise is great for core stability (anti-rotation and anti-lateral flexion) but it’s also great for shoulder mobility and stability. The band adds an element of stability not present with the barbell variation–since its tension attempts to pull the arms away from the body.
Sometimes being short on equipment isn’t such a bad thing. A new angle on an old exercise creates an added dimension.
