How to Do Landmine Hack Squats

  1. Place one end of a barbell into a corner. Facing away from the bar, place the other end on one of your shoulders.
  2. Inhale and brace your core lightly. Squat down as deep as possible with good technique.
  3. 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.
