Barbell Incline Bench Press - Medium Grip
This is a variation of the bench press that targets your upper chest by using an incline bench. It'll help give your fuller, more balanced size.
- Set your bench to a 45 degree angle or find a specially designed inclined bench press bench. lie flat on the bench with your feet firmly on the floor. Grip the bar slightly wider than shoulder-width apart.
- Lift the bar off the rack and hold it directly above your chest in the starting position. Lower the bar until it touches your chest, then hold it for a few moments. Finally, raise the bar up to the starting position.
- Use a slow, controlled motion for the incline bench press. Don't lock your elbows when you're in the starting position.
