Re: Land mine Russian Twist

I don't do this...but if I did it wouldn't be often. The barbell is in a relative fixed ellipse vs the traditional movements found in Human nature. One would find more use out of a rotational med ball toss if one wanted to work in the transverse plane. Furthermore, the muscles that control that rotational type of movement are better off in an explosive environment vs slow strength type of movement.

However...There is merit in exploring movements like this from time in order to broaden your scope of fitness.

Lastly, I would only use this lift as a finishing/secondary exercise, after I finished my other strengths lifts, and WODs.
