does anyone have experience doing one arm DB floor pressing as a serious lift?
since tearing my pec muscle (again) and screwing up my left shoulder (again) I've been working on scap retraction and have been pretty limited in what I can do exercise wise
band pushups and one arm pressing is pretty much all I can do safely for the time being and I kind of like the DB floor press - but I'm barely getting half the reps I did with full range DB bench pressing. is it usual to be so weak in this lift compared to regular pressing? with my stubby arms and chest the ROM is almost the same as a full range bench, but the pause on the floor kills it
stick to what you can do at the moment, band push ups are a good choice and the DB floor press because of the limited range will be much safer untill your chest and shoulder heal. The last thing you want to do is stretch a torn muscle, so no laterals or flys. later as you got better and more range of motion graduate onto the Cybex Unilateral chest press machine(or any other) and unilateral chest press with cable. However stick to the advice of a qualified Physio.
