Barbell Incline Bench Press
Lie back on an incline bench. Using a medium width grip (a grip that creates a 90 degree angle in the middle of the movement between the forearms and the upper arms), lift the barbell from the rack and hold it straight over you with your arms locked.
Slowly lower the barbell until you feel the barbell on your upper chest. Hold for a second.
Using your chest muscles, push the barbell back to the starting position. Lock your arms in the contracted position. Squeeze your chest, hold for a second and then start coming down slowly again. Repeat the exercise according to the training plan.
