What is the Rogue Monster Landmine 2.0?

First things first, a landmine exercise is lifting jargon for exercises performed with a barbell that has one end anchored on the ground, and the opposite end, with a weight, is held by the lifter.

A landmine machine (normally just referred to as a landmine) is a metal tube, that a barbell slides into. The landmine can pivot in any direction allowing the user to perform various exercises in multiple planes.

Rogue Fitness provide a line of landmines that are compatible with their power racks and squat stands.

The Rogue Monster Landmine 2.0 is designed to be used with their 3×3″ Monster series racks. If you have one of their 2×3” Infinity or Monster Lite rack/rig/stands, then go for their Standard Rogue Landmine.

And for those without a rack or squat stand, they offer the Post Landmine which can be set up using just a pair of bumpers or steel plates.

Rogue has added new design elements for the made in the USA, Monster Landmine 2.0.

Firstly, the Landmine 2.0 has a machined aluminum joint (with a black Cerakote finish) and a 1” solid steel mounting axle. The aluminum block is held in place via a machined shaft collar and a knurled spacer. This, along with, the bronze bushings at both the axle-to-joint connection and sleeve-tube-to-joint connection creates a smoother, quieter, more fluid movement of the unit.

The knob, spacer, shaft collar and axle are all finished in Black Zinc, while the 2” diameter sleeve tube has an MG Black powder coat finish.


How to Use a Rogue Monster Landmine 2.0
