Training the upper chest is extremely important for overall balance in the upper body, and it’s one of the most neglected aspect of chest training…usually for the simple reason that it’s harder and you can’t use as much weight. Now, for hitting those upper pecs, the Incline Barbell Bench is one of the most common exercises. If you’re like me, you have a hard time getting results from this exercise done with standard form…all you get are tired triceps and sore shoulders.
If so, I’ve got the solution for you. It’s a very simple adjustment to the setup that you use for the incline barbell press and an adjustment in how you perform the exercise.
