Mobility: "Arm Press"

Arm Press-1    Arm Press-2   
Reach high!

OBJECTIVE: Open up shoulders & lats.

  1. Stand upright.

  2. Press and “reach” one arm straight up and directly over shoulder with palm facing forward.

  3. Alternate between right and left sides with each rep.

  4. Perform 5-10 reps per side with no pausing.

Exercise Figure Tips: As you reach, really REACH UP as high as possible like you were trying to touch the ceiling.  As you reach high, your shoulder will lift slightly giving you a little better lat stretch under the arms.

  • Most people get too lazy with the high reach part--if you stretch it, you'll get a lot more out of this exercise.

*Note: This exercise is intended for "normal healthy" individuals.  If you have an injury, or abnormal pain is present,
see your physician or a certified physical therapist before continuing your exercises.
