Single-Arm Overhead Press
From: FM 7-22 October 2012


This exercise (Figure 6-38) is performed much like the overhead press, using only one arm at a time. The range of motion and resistance is decreased for the injured side. As the Soldier’s condition improves, the range of motion may gradually increase until the exercise is performed to standard. The resistance should not be increased until the Soldier can move through the full range of motion. The single-arm overhead press is used to maintain a heavy resistance on the good side and/or to reduce the resistance on the injured side.
