Incline Close Grip Dumbbell Bench Press

Coach's Tips


How to

Starting Position

1. Start by sitting on an incline bench with a dumbbell in each hand. 2. Position the dumbbells just above your chest, with your palms facing each other. 3. Keep your elbows close to your body, and your upper arms at a 45-degree angle to your torso. 4. Make sure your back is firmly pressed against the bench, and your feet are firmly planted on the floor.


1. Inhale and begin pressing the dumbbells up by extending your arms. 2. Keep your elbows close to your body as you press the weights up. 3. Exhale as you reach the top of the lift. 4. Hold for a brief moment and then slowly lower the weights back down to the starting position.

Breathing Technique

1. Inhale as you lower the weights and exhale as you press the weights up. 2. Keep your breathing steady and controlled throughout the exercise.


1. Make sure to keep your back flat against the bench and your feet firmly planted on the floor. 2. Do not lock your elbows at the top of the movement. 3. Do not overextend your arms or lift the weights too fast. 4. If you feel any pain or discomfort, stop the exercise immediately.
