Incline Dumbbell Bench Press

The incline dumbbell bench press is a great way to target your upper chest, shoulders, and triceps. The added effect of having to stabilize the dumbbells will engage your abdominals and the stabilizer muscles in your shoulder — a pretty basic movement that you see often in the real world, like loading luggage into an overhead compartment. Sit down on an incline bench with a dumbbell resting on each thigh. Lean back on the bench and kick the dumbbells up to your chest, elbows at a 90-degree angle and palms facing away from you. Push through your feet and use your chest and arms to drive the dumbbells up, until your arms are fully extended.
