Movement

1. Start off by laying at an incline on a stability ball. You will be holding yourself up with your upper back and shoulders on the stability ball while bending your leg so that the sole of your foot may rest flat on the floor. Your other leg will be straight in the air, parallel to the ground.

2. Begin by holding the dumbbells straight up in front of you so that your knuckles face the ceiling and your palms face away.

3. Slowly bring the dumbbells down and bend at the elbows so that they eventually make 90 degree angles.

4. At the bottom of the press, the back of the arms should be in a straight line, parallel to the ground, with your palms both still facing away.

5. Press back up from this position to the starting point, and repeat for repetitions.

Benefits

Incline Dumbbell Press on Ball Benefits

The incline press is designed to concentrate greater work on the upper pectorals. The primary benefit of incline presses is that they strengthen the upper pectoral muscles. Because it's similar to a shoulder press, setting the bench at an inclination of 15 to 30 degrees activates your shoulders more.
