Smith Machine Incline Bench Press

The Smith machine incline bench press is a machine-based movement targeting the chest, particularly the upper chest. The Smith machine mimics a barbell but provides more stability. This movement can be programmed in low reps for strength or higher reps for muscle and strength endurance. It is often performed for moderate to high reps, such as 8-12 reps per set or more, as part of a chest or upper-body focused workout.

Benefits

  1. Adds size and strength to the chest and triceps
  2. Many lifters find they feel the movement more in their chest and less in their shoulders than the traditional bench press
  3. The bar moves on a track making it easier to control
