Incline Dumbbell Press
How to: Incline Dumbbell Press
Primary Muscles Used:Chest, Pecs
Exercise Families:Horizontal Push
- Set an incline bench to a 35-degree incline. Holding one dumbbell in each hand with an overhand grip (palms facing away from your body), lie down on the bench and plant your feet on the floor on either side of the bench, or on the bench itself — whichever is most comfortable. Extend your elbows to hold the dumbbells directly in front of your chest. This is your starting position.
- Inhale. Bend your elbows outwards to lower the dumbbells towards your chest until your arms form two 90-degree angles, like an inverted push-up.
- Exhale. Extend your elbows and push the dumbbells away from your chest to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
