What Is A Landmine Row?
In weight lifting, a landmine is a pivoting base that attaches to one end of a barbell. And a landmine row is a type of barbell row using this apparatus.
There are several variations of landmine rows that use different handles and body positions, which I’ll explain below. But first, let’s look at the muscles activated by this exercise.
Landmine Row Muscles Worked
Like all rowing movements, the landmine row targets the muscles of the back. The largest and most active muscle group used during this exercise is the latissimus dorsi or lats.
In addition, the landmine row recruits the smaller muscles of the upper back. Such as the rhomboids, teres major, teres minor, and rear delts.
The bent-over position also activates the spinal erector muscles of the mid-back. And pulling with the arms involves some biceps.
