It’s pretty well known that changing the angle of your bench press can emphasize either the upper or lower chest depending on the angle. However, newer research has shown that the middle of the range of motion of an incline press may be the most effective portion for achieving the greatest upper chest activation. With this in mind, adding partials to your incline pressing exercises may help upper chest development!
