Incline Dumbbell Bench Press Overview

The incline dumbbell bench press is a variation of the incline bench press which primarily builds chest muscles. Shoulder and triceps muscles will also benefit from this exercise. 

Using an incline lets you target the upper part of the chest harder- a part that is usually ignored in most weightlifting exercises. Use of dumbbells means safety and muscular stability. 

How to Do It

  1. Sit down on the edge of an incline bench with dumbbells in your hand with a neutral grip.
  2. Lay back, keeping the weights close to your chest. Once you are ready, press the weight upwards stretching out your arms fully.
  3. Lower the dumbbells slowly, in a controlled fashion. 
  4. Engage your chest muscles and push the weights back up to the starting position.
  5. Repeat as many times as you can.

Tips on Incline Dumbbell Bench Press

  1. Try to keep your arms straight as you press the weights up. 
  2. Do not let dumbbells collide at the top position because that can disrupt your balance.
  3. Engage your abs during the exercise.
  4. Maintain proper form and avoid pressuring your lower back.
