- Sit on an incline bench, holding a dumbbell at chest height in your left hand
- Extend your opposite arm straight over your chest and shoulder
- Drive the dumbbell toward the ceiling until your elbow is fully extended
- Lower with control to the start position and repeat
Sets/Reps: 3×5 each arm
Coaching Points: Keep your core tight and opposite arm straight // Perform reps in a slow, controlled manner
Barlow: "This works the upper-body pushing and strengthens the chest, shoulders and triceps. The reason we did single arm is to activate the core; the core has to stay tight to resist the urge to rotate his body when pressing the dumbbell."
