TWO Of The Most Common Incline Bench Pressing Mistakes And How To FIX Them
The incline bench press is a popular exercise when training chest. Training the chest at this angle will allow a larger range of motion targeting the upper part of the pectoral muscle.
However in order to get the most out of this exercise you need to make sure you are getting proper form and positioning. One of the biggest mistakes you can make is to entirely ignore the importance of form and instead place all your focus on pushing as much weight as possible. This will not give you the results you want.
At first you might be able to get away with executing lifts improperly but after a few months it will begin to rear its head in the form of nagging and in some cases serious injuries.
One thing people fail to understand is that the information needed to perform every exercise with proper form is just a click away on the computer but some people just choose to turn the other way.
Bench pressing is a very popular exercise in the gym, you will see lots of guy load up the barbell with heavy weight and try to rep 10 or more out of it. Sometimes lowering the weight on the barbell and focusing on the movement rather than the weight will benefit you more.
Make sure you educate yourself on the exercises before you attempt them.
