Highs and Lows of the Incline Bench

Multi-angle incline Bench Press Tri-set

The benefit

Swimsuit season is just around the corner and we all know that the ultimate chick magnet at the beach is a well built chest, from top to bottom. To build a complete chest in a short effective manner is as easy as changing the angle in which you press the weight. We do decline presses for the bottom portion of our chest, flat bench presses for middle and overall growth, and inclines to hit the upper chest, but the chest is a complicated muscle.  Since the pectorals starts in the upper arm and fans down connecting to the sternum, it is important to initiate all the fibers, top to bottom, to build a complete, full, female hypnotizing chest.  This quick, high rep, efficient exercise will do the trick.

How to Do It

  1. Set an adjustable incline bench one adjustment higher than your normal incline bench press setting. Pick a weight that you could normally perform 12-15 repetitions. I recommend dumbbells for the quick transitions from weight to weight.
  2. Perform 10 reps with the bench at the established high setting. With no break move to a lighter weight and lower the bench down one adjustment. Perform 10 more reps.
  3. One more time lighten the weight, and adjust the bench down one more setting and perform your last 10 reps.

You have now performed 30 reps in one single set hitting most of the pec’s muscle fibers. Think you’re done? Once you’re done checking out your pumped up chest in the mirror it is time for set two where the bench, now at the lower setting where the first set ended will be you’re starting point. Still going from your heavier weight to lighter weight, you will move back up for a total of 60 repetitions between the two sets.

This is a perfect exercise for your chest workout or a great way to blast the chest in 2 sets before moving on to hit the rest of that beach body.
