Wide Grip Incline Bench Press Exercise
The wide-grip incline bench press exercise primarily targets the chest muscles (pectorals) and to a lesser degree also targets the tricep muscles in the back of the arm.
Important: Do not touch the bar to your chest (this causes unneeded stress on your shoulder joints and takes the tension away from your pec muscles, which are what we want to be doing the work!).
Repeat this movement for as many repetitions as you can until fatigue of the muscles is felt. Remember to always use a spotter when performing this and almost every other free weight exercise!
How to perform Wide Grip Incline Bench Press:
- Lie on your back on a bench set at a low incline and grab the bar with a wide overhand grip.
- Lift the bar so it's over your eyes.
- Slowly lower the weights to your chest, pause, and then push it back up over your eyes.
