Single-Arm Chest Press

STRENGTH TRAINING MACHINE DRILL, MODIFIED EXERCISE 4B: SINGLE-ARM CHEST PRESS

This exercise (Figure 6-32) is performed much like the chest 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 chest press is used to maintain a heavy resistance on the good side and/or to reduce the resistance on the injured side
