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.

Muscle group: Chest


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.
