Barbell Incline Bench Press

Barbell Incline Bench Press

Preparation:
Lie supine on incline bench with feet firmly on the ground. Maintain slight arch in low back with chest high, shoulders down and back, and your butt is back on the incline bench. Dismount barbell from rack to over your eyes. Use a shoulder width grip or slightly wider depending on your comfort zone.

Execution:
Inhale as you lower the bar to upper chest/clavicle area. Exhale as you press the barbell until arms are extended over the eyes. Repeat.

Comments:
Use a full range of motion. The barbell should be over your eyes at the top of the motion. Maintain a high chest throughout the movement. Don’t slide your butt away from the bench at anytime. Incline bench should be between 25 – 40 degrees, no higher. When the incline is too steep you will involve more of the front deltoids than upper chest muscles. For safety have a spotter to assist you.
