Incline Dumbbell Flies on Incline Weight Bench


1. Position yourself on a free standing incline bench.

2. Grab a dumbbell in each hand, and lay back on the incline.

3. Bring the dumbbells up to your upper chest.

4. Press the dumbbells up directly above the upper chest with palms facing inward toward one another.

5. Keeping a slight bend in the elbows, lower the dumbbells out wide to your sides, keeping the palms facing inwards, toward one another.

6. You should feel a good stretch in your upper chest muscles.

7. When you lift the dumbbells back up together to the peak position, visualize hugging a giant tree trunk.

8. At the top of the peak of the movement, squeeze your upper chest together for a one-count.

9. When lowering the dumbbells back down again to your sides, be sure to lower the weight in a slow and controlled fashion.

10. Repeat this movement for as many repetitions as you can until failure.
