Nice work.

Are you holding the bar when you do landmine squats or do you have it chained to a squat/dip belt?

i hold the end of the bar up to my chest and squat deep; yesterday's squats were squad-centered.

I figured that is how you did them, as that is generally what I see when most people say landmine squat. I ran the chain from my belt squat to it and gave it a try a couple times. The issue I have is that I really have to get my feet elevated to get enough depth for my way to be effective and I run out of plates to stand on, as I need most for lifting. For your way, I have to find a safe way to get the bar up to my chest with that much weight on there. When I do landmine press with (3) 45's on the front I can feel some twinges when I pick the bar up and clear it to my chest. I couldn't imagine what it would feel like with 4-5 of them on there.

yeah, with quads like your, you would need to use the chain for that many plates. I'll put two max on the way I do it (holding near chest).

I did Goblet squats with a 150 lbs dumbbell and my shoulders and arms failed well before my quads. Haha.

Nice work brother! I much prefer the rear grip shrugs over shrugs to the front or side. You hit the entire trap with the rear grip shrugs. People forget that traps run down your back for a bit. You can also hit the lower traps from the side grip on a machine if you get your hands behind your midline.
