Key Points:

1) Adjust the bench angle 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) Lift the DBs up to the starting position, so that they are directly above the shoulder and chest area.

4) Lower the weight with both arms 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.

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