One Arm Shoulder Press

If an alternating overhead press is not sufficient for you to bring your lacking side up, then giving this a shot is definitely one of the best options.

This exercise implies completing the overhead pressing movement separately on both sides, while the opposite of the working side is under static tension.

On top of that we’re doing it seated, meaning that the balance will be far greater.

execution

  1. 1
    Grab a pair of dumbbells and sit down on a 90-degree bench (Angle can be slightly lower if 90 degrees is not comfy)
  2. 2
    Lift both dumbbells up to head level – This is your initial position, where the arms are parallel to the ground or slightly lower
  3. 3
    From the initial position, lift the left dumbbell up and contracting the shoulder up top
  4. 4
    After briefly holding peak flexion, go down slowly to the initial position
  5. 5
    Repeat the motion with the same arm, until you get 10 repetitions
  6. 6
    After the 10th rep, do the same on the opposite side
  7. 7
    Drop the dumbbell from the side that worked first
  8. 8
    Hold the dumbbell in the initial position for the arm that worked second, for as long as it would take you to complete 10 reps (This is done to even out the static tension on both sides)
