Landmine Lateral Raise Form
The description and video above should give you a good idea of how to do landmine lateral raises correctly. But here are a few more tips to help you get the most out of the exercise.
First, align your hips directly below your shoulders before performing the movement. You don’t want your legs to be too far forward or back.
Next, ensure you’re holding the sleeve part of the bar and not the shaft. And you can even move further out so you’re holding the end of the sleeve.
Remember, the further you are from the landmine, the more leverage you have. Also, the radius created by the bar is the largest at the end, making it a more natural movement path.
Finally, you’ll notice that your hand tilts forward in pronation as you get to the top. Some studies suggest that rotating your thumb down, as if pouring out a glass of water, is the best way to isolate your lateral delt.
