Welcome to Chase N’ Weights, where we take a look at a lift that you didn’t do (because you’re reading this).

This time we’ll tackle a superset combining a Standing Landmine Press and a 35 Degree Landmine Incline Press. The target muscle group here is the chest.

“You will want to set the bench up first to make sure you can easily transition to the incline press. I wouldn’t use a plate larger than a 25 for fear on crushing all future generations in one blow (i.e. don’t smash the downstairs mix up).  [Take] care when setting the weight down afterwards: one hand on top, one hand on the bar. Also: be sure to moon the camera right before you rest. 3-4 sets of 10-15.”

You’ll notice a slight arch in the back– and that’s fine. Just be sure that you’re engaging the right muscle group: the chest. It’s the chest that needs to carry the load and engage on the lift. Don’t let the back overtake the weight.

Give it a try and let us know what you think!
