Incline bench press is the real deal. It showcases more overall strength than the flat bench press and can help improve your flat bench.
There are many ways to perform this movement. If you are a bodybuilder trying to build your chest, this method may not be the most efficient.
This is the functional way to perform bench press. Lowering the bar all the way to your upper chest will allow your muscles to develop strength throughout the entire range of motion.
This is the way to perform incline bench press if you aim to increase your strength.
You will be less likely to get injured if you perform the incline bench press with the J-lift as opposed to bodybuilder style where you attempt to totally target the chest muscle rather than the entire muscle group as shown.
