Dumbbell Press Incline

Muscle Groups Worked:


How to Perform This Exericse:

1) Start with your hands shoulder width apart on a 30 degree incline.

2) With your chest expanded outward and the small of your back firmly on the bench lower the dumbbells to your shoulders.

3) Without touching your shoulders, or minimally touching them, raise the dumbbells upward until you lock your arms.

4) Remember to keep your arms perpendicular (A 90 degree angle) to your chest.

Keep your chest expanded throughout the motion to ensure targeting your pecs (your pectoralis major and minor muscles).  If you do not do this, you will be also hitting your delts.  Do not take your buttocks or the small of your back off the bench, this may cause harm, and will only work separate muscles than you wish to work out.
