How To Perform Exercise

The machine incline bench press is an exercise that focuses upon the upper portion of the pectoral muscles and is preferred by most people as it offers more stability for people new to the exercise.

Steps :

1.) Start off by adjusting the seat of the bench so that the handles are aligned with the upper portion of your chest, keeping your back flat on the back padding and grabbing the handles with an overhand grip, as this will be your starting position.

2.) Slowly press the handles forward until your hands are fully extended and you feel a stretch in your chest muscles.

3.) Hold this position for a count then slowly return back to the starting position.

4.) Repeat for as many reps and sets as desired.

Tips :

1.) Keep your shoulders and lower back against the bench at all times during this exercise.

2.) Refrain from bouncing the handles back on the machine.
