The barbell incline bench press is a variation of the bench press that primarily targets the upper chest muscles, but also works the shoulders and triceps. It involves lying on an incline bench with a barbell at arm's length, lowering the barbell to the chest while keeping the elbows slightly tucked in, and pushing the barbell back up to the starting position. The barbell incline bench press is considered to be an excellent compound exercise that helps improve upper body strength, stability, and muscle mass. It allows for heavier weights to be used compared to other chest exercises, such as the dumbbell incline bench press, due to the involvement of larger muscle groups. It can be performed with various grip widths to target different areas of the chest and shoulders, and can also be modified based on individual fitness levels by adjusting the weight and number of sets and reps.
