How to Do Landmine Hack Squats
- Place one end of a barbell into a corner. Facing away from the bar, place the other end on one of your shoulders.
- Inhale and brace your core lightly. Squat down as deep as possible with good technique.
- With control, stop and reverse the movement, extending your hips and legs again until you are standing up.
The landmine hack squat is a blend of the hack squat and the landmine squat. In similarity to these exercises, the landmine hack squat primarily targets your leg muscles and does not place a lot of load on your lower back.
This exercise can be a good choice if you want to emphasize your quadriceps muscles in a relatively stable exercise, but don’t have access to a hack squat machine.
