How to perform?

The Incline Barbell Bench Press is a variation of the traditional bench press that targets the upper portion of the chest muscles and anterior deltoids. The exercise involves lying on an inclined bench and pressing a barbell upwards, while keeping the elbows at a 45-degree angle to the body. In addition to the chest and shoulder muscles, the triceps also play a significant role in this exercise. The incline angle places more emphasis on the upper chest muscles and can help create a well-rounded, aesthetic chest.
