Step 2

Place a barbell on the rack at an appropriate height and adjust the weights.

Step 3

Lie down on the inclined bench.

Hold the handle with a pronated grip (palms facing forward). Your hands should be shoulder width away from each other. Also, make sure that the handle of the barbell is parallel with your shoulders.

Lift the barbell off the rack. Lift and hold it over you.

Slightly bend your elbows. This is your starting position.
