Torsonator, also known as the landmine to most gym-goers is that little piece of pivot equipment usually placed at the corner of the weight lifting area at your local gym. It is sometimes attached to a power rack and used to create rotational movements to exert stresses on your shoulders, arms, core, lower back, and lower body muscles. Unlike most weight equipment where there’s a high risk of being injured, the landmine is a safer bet to gaining that super core strength and muscle growth.

How do I perform my landmine training safely?

In any kind of exercise, your equipment’s safety systems are not enough to keep you protected from the countless injuries that you may suffer from it. But you can fortify your safety by using the equipment the right way, for the right purposes and being mindful of each and every movement in your workouts. Please heed these safety guidelines when exercising with a Torsonator™.

Always do warm-ups and cool-downs. Warm-ups and cool-downs are meant to condition your body either before the strenuous exercise or to signal your body to calm down. Stretching your limbs for a while and picking up dumbbell weights can get you ship and shape to carry on the onslaught of your landmine training. Warm-ups and cool-downs are your gateways to not strain any ligament, bone, or muscle of your body.

Don’t rush. Move at your own pace, feel your muscles stretch and contract in every move. In exercising, quantity is not essential, it’s the quality that counts. Keeping it slow would also allow you to really wear your muscles out and not just rely on the momentum of the speed of your movements to pick up the weights. This would also give you enough time to react if something’s wrong with what you’re doing.

Don’t overdo. It’s true that you’ve had a productive work out when after a set you don’t even want to move. But there’s always a limit to the exhaustion you can subject your body to. When it feels like your limbs want to give up, rest for a few minutes, drink your self-made milkshake or juice, and then get back into action again.

Don’t forget your shoes. You might have raised your eyebrows at that, but having the right equipment doesn’t just mean your gym gear. Your shoes are your fitness equipment too. Wear shoes that could give you enough traction and support from slipping or injuring yourself in weight training.
