The Incline Barbell Bench Press is a good variation on the traditional Bench Press. This variation works the upper chest and shoulders, specifically the pectorals, triceps and front deltoids.

Set your bench up at an angle of 30-45 degrees. Plant your feet into the ground and lie back on the bench. Grab the bar, making sure you are holding it symmetrically. Press the bar away from the rack. Bring the bar down into the mid-chest, in line with the armpits. At the top of each repetition aim to achieve a straight arm without straining the head or the neck, whilst keeping engagement through the core.
