Hello Dangerously Hardcore Community,My friend and I just recently started following the Shockwave Protocol over the past couple of weeks and have a quick question. What is the main difference between land mines and wood choppers since Kiefer recommends both? And if you guys have any tips or cues to focus on while performing these, I would be greatly appreciated if you could share your experiences with them.And just in case someone asks, yes I have watched the Youtube videos on both exercises on Kiefer's channel. Just wanted to get real life feedback from people who have experience performing them.Thanks in advance 🙂April 18, 2012 at 4:13 pm #43698
I do both, and the landmines would seem the same yes but it's down with lower motion, while wood choppers are done in the higher motion. At least that's how I do it.April 18, 2012 at 4:51 pm #43699
Thanks for the speedy reply Tex! One other question, do you flex your abs through the entire set? Just want to make sure I am performing them correctly because I hate wasting time in the gym.April 18, 2012 at 5:11 pm #43700
Oh yes, it is a very good idea to flex them. That's what I do each time I perform any ab/core movement.April 18, 2012 at 7:06 pm #43701
Make sure you keep good posture throughout the movement as well so you avoid injury.April 19, 2012 at 12:00 pm #43702

A wood chopper you are actually rotating the torso. The landmine is stabilization move.April 19, 2012 at 10:58 pm #43703

Personally, I like landmines much better and think they are more difficult and generally just better. To each his ownJune 6, 2012 at 1:55 pm #43707

Question on these for the SW protocol….20 reps per set...but what constitutes one "rep"? is it going from straight up to the side, and then back up again? or going from one side to the other? or going from one side to the other and back again? thanks.
