    Question Land mines, aka full contact twists?

    so i read about this exercise called the full contact twist, aka landmines. Its supposed to be the best ab workout hands down. the problem is, i cant find a good description of how to do the exercise properly. BB.com has a decent explanation, but i tried it and couldn't figure it out.

    Basically all i know is that you take a barbell, and place one end in the corner of the room. I also know how to hold the bar, but i dont know where to stand and how to perform the movement. Ive searched the ENTIRE web and haven't found any good explanations.

    I do know that theres a book called "bullet proof abs" by Pavel, that has a good explanation but i tried downloading the e-book which didn't work, and checked the book store, but they didn't have it.

    Can someone please explain how to do this exercise? Thank you.

    awesome guys thanks for the replies. I understand now, you gotta be facing the wall, i was trying it facing away hehe.

    Has anyone tried making a landmine unit, or do you guys just put the bar in the corner. Also what kinda set/ rep scheme do you use?

    Once again, thank you

    I do a similar thing using 2 dumbbells. One exercise with the weights around shoulder height, another with them around the hips.

    Be careful not to swing into each movement by minimising your momentum as you approach your stopping points
