Sonja Mairenn. Bench. January 18th , 2017.
This variation will take the pressure off your shoulders. This puts more stress on the top portion of the pectoralis. Incline the bench so that it is angled at no more than 30 degrees.
The range of motion in a barbell routine is restricted, as the bar might end up resting on your chest. However, if you are using dumbbells, there is a greater range of motion. Here, your elbows can go way below the shoulders, and this range of movement is more effective to strengthen the muscles.
Now bring the bar down so that it's almost touching your chest. Hold for 1 count and push the bar back to the start position.
Take it off the rack, inhale and slowly lower it towards your chest. Stay in this position for 2 seconds. Exhale while going back to the initial position.
