Wide-Grip Barbell Incline Bench Press



Lie back on incline bench. Put your feet firm on the floor and grasp the bar with overhand grip (palms facing your feet) with your hands at the widest grip you can safely manage(the angle in the middle portion of the movement between your arms and forearms must be bigger than 90-degree). Lift the bar from the rack and hold it above the chest. This will be your wide grip bench starting position.


As you inhale start lower the weight slowly, until you feel the bar on your upper chest. Keep the elbows pointed outward in order to fully involve the chest. Bring the bar up to the starting position as you exhale and push the bar using you chest muscles. Contract the pecs at the top, hold for a second and repeat the movement for desire reps.
