I did my landmines that look more like in the pictures from this article than from the video:

The landmine is a total-body conditioning, core stability, anti-rotation exercise that will lead to abdominal, oblique, and upper glute hypertrophy. The trick is to pivot the feet, avoid twisting at the spine, and focus on rotating at the hips. The landmine will lead to increased rotary strength and power, which is extremely important for your mission.

You will use the transferred benefits of this exercise to disarm, punch, strike, and take down your attackers.
"And for crying out loud. Don't go into the pain cave. I can't stress this enough. Your Totem Animal won't be in there to help you. You'll be on your own. The Pain Cave is for cowards.
Pain is your companion, don't go hide from it."
