Incline Dumbbell Bench Press

Performing an incline dumbbell bench press is similar to flat bench, but the bench is inclined, working the shoulder muscles more than in a flat bench variation. The greater the incline, the more the shoulders are worked. Lighter dumbbells may be necessary for an incline bench press.

  1. Follow same directions as for flat bench, except that dumbbells are lowered to the upper chest, rather than to nipple line. History of shoulder injuries – make sure you read the entire instruction page.

Variation: Less challenging is the Flat Bench Dumbbell Bench Press.
