The Incline Dumbbell Bench Press
Illustration And Description
The incline dumbbell bench press is a great alternative to the traditional incline barbell press. The exercise targets the upper chest area but also hits the secondary muscles including the front shoulders and triceps. This exercise is considered a compound movement since it hits more than one muscle group.
1. While seated in an incline bench, grasp two dumbbells in an overhand grip.
2. Rest the dumbbells in an upright position on the edge of your knees.
3. Carefully lie on the incline bench, bringing the dumbbells to the sides of your torso at chest level. Feet should be planted firmly on the floor.
4. Slowly adjust the dumbbells with your arms fully extended at right angles to the floor. Press the weight up to the locked position. The dumbbells should be held directly over your chest area, slightly touching each other with palms facing forward.
Execution of the incline dumbbell bench press
1. Slowly bend you arms and lower both dumbbells in a slow, controlled fashion to your chest. The dumbbells should be at the sides of your chest.
2. Lower the dumbbells to a position where you feel a comfortable stretch.
3. Slowly press the weight back up from the sides of your chest to the starting position. Do not bounce the weight from the chest. Keep you elbows out and away from the trunk of your body.
