Yearlong (Ph I, W II)
Phase I Workout II
1 Incline Bench Press
Sets: 2-4 Reps: Work up to your 5RM
Set an adjustable bench to a 30- to 45-degree incline and lie down on it. Grab the bar with an overhand, shoulder-width grip and lift it off the rack, arching your back (A). Lower the bar to the upper part of your chest, tucking your elbows near your sides as it comes down (B). Once the bar touches your chest, push your feet hard into the floor and press the weight up. Work up to your five rep max as you did for the squat in Workout 1.
