Incline Bench Press

Posted by KinX Learning on June 16, 2017 . 0 Comments

The muscles and actions involved in this exercise are a cross between the bench press and the overhead press. In essence, the movement is diagonal flexion, which uses some of the muscles that are involved in the bench press and the overhead press. Thus, rather than describing these muscles and actions again, just remember that the greater the incline, the closer the exercise approaches the muscles and actions in the overhead press, and the lower the incline, the more the exercise approaches the muscles and actions in the bench press.
