Lever Barbell Incline Bench Press (plate loaded)

Instructions

Preparation

Lie supine on incline bench with upper chest under bar. Grasp bar with wide oblique overhand grip. Disengage bar by rotating bar back.

Execution

Lower weight to chest. Press bar until arms are extended. Repeat.

Comments

Orientation relative to lever will depend upon height of fulcrum relative to bench. Position body so bar is over shoulders during extension, yet lower on chest in lowest position. Feet can be placed on bench as shown for more comfortable low back positioning. Range of motion will be compromised if grip is too wide.
