Incline Barbell Bench Press
Pectoralis major (upper chest).
Also used Anterior deltoids, Triceps, Pectoralis major.
- Lie on an incline bench angled at 30-60° (the steeper the
incline, the greater the stress on the upper pectorals and anterior
deltoids). Ideally the bench should have an attached barbell rack.
- Hold the bar with your hands shoulderwidth apart, palms facing
forwards. Remove the bar from the barbell rack so it is positioned
directly over your collarbone with your arms fully extended.
- Bend your arms, allowing your elbows to travel out to the sides, and slowly lower the bar down to your chest.
- The bar should just touch the upper part of your chest beneath your collarbone. Hold for a count of two.
- Push the bar back to the starting position.
- Do not arch your back as you push the bar upwards. This risks lower-back strain.
- Do not bounce the bar off your chest or use the momentum of the weight to complete the repetition.
- The higher you place the bar on your chest, the greater the work placed on the anterior deltoids rather than the upper chest.
