Rotational training with olympic set

Are there any competitors to the Landmine ground based rotational device?
Or better yet is there a creative way of utilizing the olympic bar in a corner (fenced area) that doesn't do damage to the fence. Thanks

The gut wrench looks good. I bought this (W/F/S): http://www.newyorkbarbells.com/9135br.html a couple years ago. Put two of them on my squat rack. Works great, single or double. Plus way cheaper and more stable than the actual landmine or the Gut Wrench.

Re: Rotational training with olympic set

I do a lot of those exercises shown in the video with my trainees, especially the full contact twists, and I just put the bar down on a plate with a deep rim in the corner of the rack, it works pretty well. But we're only working with an additional 20-40 lbs on top of the bar. The first time I attempted it, I didn't put the plate down and tore up the platform pretty good.

Has anyone seen a DIY version of these rotational devices or do I need to get in the lab?

I'ts called a towel and a corner. you can easilly do the same exercise by wrapping one end of the bart in a havy beach towel then sticking in a corner of a room. Works almost as well. I use to own a Sorinex Landmine, BTW.

Don't think it will work with a fence, tho.

What did you think of the Sorinex landmine? Not worth the money?

Re: Rotational training with olympic set

I've never used a Landmine, but I've done rotational work by placing one end of the barbell in the hole of a 25# weight plate. I'm sure it does not work as well, but it kept the barbell stable enough to do my rotation work.
