Lie down on the incline chest press apparatus and grab the barbell wider than your shoulders. This is the starting position.
Unrack the weight and lower the barbell down until it's a few inches from your chest. You should be lowering it in line with your upper chest. Then, raise the weight back up to the starting position. Repeat the movement for the desired number of repetitions.

SPECIAL NOTES & LEVEL of DIFFICULTY VARIATIONS
To increase the level of difficulty, lower the bar further down until it touches your upper chest or just increase the weight.
This is one of the all-time classic exercises for the chest. It's the core of any respectable chest workout routine. The execution of this movement is simple yet very effective and pays high dividends with each repetition performed.
The ideal way to do this movement is to have a spotter behind you so that you can focus on pushing yourself to the limit with each set that you do. The spotter is there to give you piece of mind and help you with the final few lifts where you are pushing yourself to complete failure.
If you don't have a training partner or spotter you may have to hold back just a bit in order to ensure optimal safety when executing this movement.
