Progressing the Chest Pass

Just like all of our other med ball progressions, all the athletes that I work with will get used to the med ball Chest Pass for various reasons.

✅ It helps to develop power in the pushing/pressing muscle
✅ Helps to transfer the strength gained from pushing/pressing exercises into usable power in sport
✅ Essentially an upper body plyometric, something that will we pair with a pushing/pressing movement (bench, DB bench, etc) when we are performing Complex training

Our Progression will look something like this 👇

1️⃣ Tall Kneeling
2️⃣ Standing
3️⃣ Stepping
4️⃣ Sprinter Start

We will typically perform 2 or 3 sets of 5-8 reps, depending on the time of the year, sport, and training effect we are attempting to train.

Additionally, if you are looking for more progressions and regressions, check out my Coaches Guide to Progressions and Regressions.

In it you will find all our progressions…core, upper body, lower body, plyo, med ball and more!
