There are many different ways to exercise the Pectoralis Major muscle and one of the more popular and more effective is the incline dumbbell press. As the angle at which you are laying back is not flat you can vary the angle at which you lift the dumbbells thereby exercising slightly different parts of your Pectoralis Major muscle. This tends to give a more general improvement in muscle tone and muscle build and can also be challenging – what better way to keep motivated than keep pushing yourself.
What many people tend to do is rotate the dumbbells ever so slightly on the lift stage from palms forward to palms inward position. This will cause rotation of the upper arm which places more emphasis on the Pectoralis Major. Many people are surprised to learn that even the slightest tweak in a specific exercise can bring about a whole array of additional benefits.
