The In cline rress is a better exercise for b uild in q a larqe beautiful chest than the bench. It works the upper pecs and shoulders and gives the chest a full and hard look that is not achieved by doing flat bench. I do a lot of inclines and for many years only did inclines with ver y little flat bench.
Warm up d oinq fuI extension reps. L- sets of
10 to 15 reps.
Here I grip the bar ^ith my hand about as wide
as my chest and I use a hi a If up motion. I do not go all the up. I only go about 5 to 12 inches.
I do 5 to 8 sets of 35 to 75. It is im portant to watch your breathing because you can easily run out of breath doing inclines. Be sure to breath every few reps. And it is also important n it to have a spotter to help lift the bar off your chest if you are forcing the last few reps. Unlike the flat bench. You really cant cheat and put the bar up on the incline. When y our chest is exhausted you wwill need help to put the bar up.
INCLINE PRESS Wide GRIP
Here once again I do not go all the way up, I use half ups and q o about 6 to 12 inches. I do i sets of 35 to 50.
