Incline Dumbbell Bench Press

Incline Dumbbell Bench Press

This is a variation of exercises for chest muscles.

This exercise reveals a greater range of motion and due to the dumbbells instability, it also involves the stabilizer muscles.


Take the dumbbells and lie down on an incline bench.

Start off by lifting the dumbbells to the starting position - hands shoulder width apart, palms down.

As you inhale, slowly lower the dumbbells down to the level of your neck or upper part of the chest as your flexibility allows you.

Lower your arms a little bit further than 90-degrees between the forearms and the upper arms.

As you exhale, push the dumbbells to the starting position.

Typical mistakes and tips

Do not set the bench angle at more than 60 degrees. This leads to high tension placed on the deltoids.

Keep your lower back and glutes in contact with the bench. Otherwise, you risk hurting your lower back.

Do not hold your breathe during the exercise. It can increase your blood pressure.

Do not use the weight that’s too heavy. It restricts the full range of movement and doesn't allow you to stretch the working muscle fully.
