what is the step by step process of performing inclined chest press?

1. Lie back on an incline bench. Make sure the bench is adjusted to between 15 and 30 degrees on an incline. Anything higher than 30 degrees mainly works the
anterior deltoids (shoulders). Your grip should be where your elbows make a 90-degree angle.
2. Using a shoulder-width grip, wrap your fingers around the bar with your palms facing away from you. Lift the bar up from the rack and hold it straight over you
with your arms locked.
3. As you breathe in, come down slowly until the bar is an inch away from your chest. You want the bar to be in line with your upper chest the whole time. Your arms
should be at a 45-degree angle and tucked into your sides.
4. Hold this position for one count at the bottom of this movement and, with one big exhale, push the bar back up to your starting
position. Lock your arms, hold, and
come down slowly.
5. Do 12 repetitions and then place the bar back on the rack.
6. Complete a total of five sets, adding weight after each set.
