Seated One-Arm Thick-Bar Javelin Press

December 11, 2019 | John Paul Catanzaro

Here’s an exercise you may not have seen before. It’s a seated one-arm thick-bar javelin press. I’m using an Apollon’s Axle in the video.

I picked up the movement from Stephane Cazeault of KILO Strength Society. Stephane does it standing in a staggered stance, but if you don’t have enough height in your power cage, the seated version works just as well and offers a unique challenge by eliminating the legs from the movement.

Don’t be deceived by this exercise. It’s actually a lot tougher than it looks! Start with an empty bar and work your way up from there.

I’m using a 4-1-X-1 tempo for 4 sets of 6-8 reps. Give it a shot!
