Incline dumbbell bench press

The incline dumbbell bench press is a popular upper-body exercise targeting the upper pectoral muscles. While it can be a strength-focused movement, it is usually performed for moderate to high reps, such as 8-12 reps per set or more, as part of upper-body or chest-focused training.


  1. Adds size and strength to the pecs
  2. Targets the upper chest
  3. Greater range of motion than barbell presses
  4. Allows for natural shoulder and wrist rotation
  5. May be more shoulder-friendly than barbell presses
