The incline dumbbell press is a variation of the basic dumbbell bench press that targets the upper chest muscles. To perform the exercise, the bench is set to an incline of around 30 to 45 degrees and the athlete lies down with a dumbbell in each hand at shoulder-width. The dumbbells are then lifted up and brought together at the top of the movement, with the arms extended but not locked, then slowly lowered down to the starting position. The incline dumbbell press is a great exercise for developing upper chest muscles as it allows for a greater range of motion than the basic bench press, and this variation can be particularly beneficial for athletes looking to compete in bodybuilding or powerlifting, as increasing upper chest muscle mass can help to improve the physique and improve lifting performance. However, as with any exercise, it is important to use proper form and technique to avoid injury and maximize benefits.
