The incline straight-arm pull-over is an upper-body exercise targeting the chest and lats (latissimus dorsi). Performing it on an incline bench emphasizes the stretch on the chest in particular. If this movement causes pain in the front of the shoulders, perform it with a more limited range of motion or try pull-overs using a high cable stack instead. Pull-over variations are usually performed for moderate to high reps, such as 8-12 reps per set or more, as part of chest or back-focused upper-body training.
