Up until recently, I’ve only used flat bench press and machine flies for chest development and progress has stalled.
My upper chest as you can imagine, lacks development as a result of not using incline.
I have two major issue with form when performing incline dumbbell presses and need advice on fixing them.
First, I can never tell if the dumbbells are going straight up. I know I’m supposed to be able to feel extra strain on my delts (or abs if they go over the other way) if it isn’t going straight up, but I can’t really tell.
Second, I feel like other muscles such as my delts or arms give out before my chest does. I also feel like I’m stretching my chest and shoulders too far back. I thought it might be a weight issue, but lowering the weight below what I’m using now does nothing for me.
