Key Points:

1) Adjust the bench angle and barbell height for an incline press.

2) Maintain “5 points of contact”: (1) Head; (2) Shoulders; (3) Pelvis/Gluteus: (4) Left Foot; and (5) Right Foot.

3) Lower the barbell while maintaining the wrist over the elbow. Be sure to keep the upper arms in a 45-degree angle (in relation to the torso). Return to the starting position and repeat for the prescribed number of reps.

4) Breathing: Inhale when lowering the weight, exhale when returning the starting position.
