Incline Bench Press

Start: If you incline bench adjusts, set it at between 10 and 30 degrees to target your upper chest. With your head, torso, and hips pressed to the bench and your feet flat on the floor, use a full overhand grip that's slightly wider than shoulder-width to hold the barbell at arm's length above your chin.

Finish: Lower the bar, in control, to within an inch or two of your collarbone. Then press it up an very subtly back so that it finishes above your chin.
