Incline chest bench


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Incline chest bench within the Weight Training & Weight Lifting category.

Excerpt: Fellas, Just wanted to share an exercise that I think works great. Incline chest on smith machine with a twist. After doing a good 3-4 sets normal incline. I mix it up by setting the 'safety stops' just so that the bar rests at my chest, so I actually get a 2 second 'rest' as the bar is close to my chest, then push it up like normal, slowly down and 2 sec pause again. For me, this feels really good. I do 3 sets until failure. It almost sounds easier than normal incline, but it's hard

    Incline chest bench

    Fellas,


    Just wanted to share an exercise that I think works great. Incline chest on smith machine with a twist. After doing a good 3-4 sets normal incline. I mix it up by setting the 'safety stops' just so that the bar rests at my chest, so I actually get a 2 second 'rest' as the bar is close to my chest, then push it up like normal, slowly down and 2 sec pause again. For me, this feels really good. I do 3 sets until failure.


    It almost sounds easier than normal incline, but it's hard as hell. Obviously using heavy weights.


    If my description made any sense, have you tried this and what's your thoughts?

    It's been around for years. Indeed I just wrote yesterday about pausing on the chest.

    You can do this in a cage with an adjustable bench and safety stops, and keep your stabilizers working, whereas with the Smith machine you are on rails
