Incline Barbell Bench Press

How To Do An Incline Barbell Bench Press Exercise Video Demonstration and Guide

The incline barbell bench press is a great exercise that places more focus on the upper chest, as well as the triceps and shoulders.

To get started:

  1. With your back on the bench, grip a barbell with a just outside shoulder width grip, feet planted firmly into the floor.
  2. Lift the bar off the rack and to ensure the tension is placed on your chest and not primarily on your shoulders, squeeze your shoulder blades back and down before lowering the weight.
  3. Next, slowly lower the bar by bending your elbows and pulling them down to your sides.
  4. Contract your chest, push your head and back into the bench, and push the bar back up to the top of the lift, always ensuring the bar is in alignment and directly above your elbows.
  5. Repeat.
