The purpose of incline bench press exercise is a simple yet effective way to gain upper body strength. It is traditionally performed on an incline weight bench. The weight training bench is a traditional piece of equipment with a flat surface and padded top, adequately designed specifically to be used weight in a series of weight training exercises. It exists in a number of sizes and a variety of designs. Some are fixed in a folding position, fixed in a horizontal position and fixed in an incline position, occasionally fitted with racks to accommodate weighted barbells consisting of two or more adjustable sections. We cant forget about the incline db dumbbell bench press.
This extremely effective exercise is used by professional bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts for a number or training exercises aimed to target the chest, along with the shoulders and triceps muscles. Two of the the primary exercises performed on the inclined bench include the incline Bench Press and the db Dumbbell Incline Bench Press.
If using an adjustable bench, the lift must start by adjusting the bench to an inclined angle of between 30 to 40 degrees while adding the required weight plates. Many individuals however have preferred setting the inclined bench at a minimum of 30 degrees to prevent over-stressing the trained muscles during their workout.
While performing this exercise it is strongly suggested to have a spotter or professional trainer on hand to assist the individual in the event that the person experiences any difficulty during the exercise. Additionally it is highly important that the individual performing the incline bench press not allow the barbell to bounce off the chest when lowering the bar as this action has been observed to be the leading cause for broken ribs experienced by the individual exercising.
