How to Do Hammer Strength Incline Press

This exercise emphasizes the target area (upper pecs) rather than the stabilizers needed to balance a free weight. Exhale as you push straight out (not up) with your head back, feet firm on the ground, hands at the height of your pecs, and elbows straight down. Inhale as the weights come closer to your chest and exhale again as you push out.
