Commercial Incline Bench Press Machine

The Commercial Incline Bench Press Machine focuses the pectoral major muscle which consists of the clavicular and a sternocostal head or also known as upper and lower pec. This exercise lessens tension on your rotator cuff which is a common injury when using the flat bench.

Commercial Incline Bench Press Machine targets the upper chest, deltoids, triceps, and assists in developing the upper body strength. It also stretches your chest muscles more than the flat bench press machine. This exercise helps in improving your shoulder stability and it is safer for your shoulder than other variety of bench press exercise. Another benefit of using the chest press machine is you no longer need to have any spotter when doing the workout and it remains stable when doing the exercise.

Lie with your back flat on the inclined plane of the bench, position your hands outside of the shoulder’s range. Stick your shoulder blades by keeping them together and making them embrace the bench. Take deep breaths every pump and have your spotter assist you with every lift so that you can retain the form of your shoulders and upper extremities. Have the weight stay up there for a while and remember to always maintain form to get the maximum benefits out of this workout.

While bringing the bar down remember to do it in a slow manner while unlocking the elbows and always inhale to prepare for the next lift-off. Lower the bar positioned directly above your sternum until it lightly touches the chest. When elevating the bar up always keep your form and posture in check. For better stability, always maintain the straight line while lifting up the bar, anchor your feet to the ground, and let your leg balance your body and extend the elbows slowly. Add in weight to bulk up muscles or increase repetitions for more body trimming.
