Proper Exercise Technique

Lie on the incline bench and grip the bar evenly, just outside shoulder width. Keep your feet, butt and shoulders planted firmly on the bench and un-rack the weight. Lower the bar to your upper chest, pause briefly, and drive the weight back up into the starting position.

Tips: Make sure that the bench is angled at no more than 30 degrees. If you tilt the bench too high you will end up placing too much emphasis on the shoulders rather than the chest. Also remember to avoid bouncing and jerking the weight and instead use a smooth and controlled motion. It would also be wise to avoid locking your elbows out at the top of the movement, as this could lead to an injury.
