- Make sure your incline isn’t too high—this is a common mistake. If your incline is too high, you’re taking more chest out of it and putting more on your shoulder. Scale it back a notch or two from what you’re used to: it’s roughly a 30-45 degree incline for optimal results.
- Good technique is important; just like your flat bench, your feet should stay on the floor and your rear delts should stay on the inclined bench.
- Don’t be afraid to lower the weight—Most people aren’t as strong on incline when compared to the flat bench. This is 100% ok. Don’t let it mess with your mindset. Heavy is relative; just focus on the movement.
