Purpose of Exercise: To develop the middle and upper pectoral muscles. You can vary the angle of the incline bench from almost flat to almost upright; the more upright the bench, the more you work the deltoids.
Take a dumbbell in each hand and lie back on an incline bench. Swing the dumbbell up so that they are at shoulder height, palms facing forward. Simultaneously lifting them straight up overhead. Then coming back down with the dumbbells under complete control letting them stretch as much as possible. Then press it back up to the starting position.
You can vary the way your hands are positioned also by starting them off palms facing forward and twisting them as you lift up where the palms would be then facing each other.
