Purpose of Exercise:


You can vary the angle of the incline bench from almost flat to almost upright; the more upright the bench, the more you work the upper pecs.


    • Take a dumbbell in each hand and lie back on an incline bench.
    • Hold them at shoulder height, palms facing forward.
    • Lift them simultaneously straight up overhead, then lower them back to the starting position (don’t rest while you are in the starting position.)


As a variation, you can hold the dumbbells straight overhead as a starting position. You can begin with palms; facing one another and twist your wrists as you lower the dumbbells so that the palms face forward, then twist them back to the starting position as you lift them. You can change the angles of the bench and holding positions of dumbbells any time you feel, from set to set.
