START: Set an adjustable bench to an incline (about 30 to 45 degrees). Lie faceup on the bench. Grab a dumbbell in one hand and hold it over your chest.

MOVEMENT: Without changing the angle of your hands, lower the dumbbell to the side of your chest. Pause, and then press the weight back up to the starting position as quickly as you can. Straighten your arm completely at the top of each repetition.

From the MH experts: The steeper the incline of the bench, the more work your shoulders have to do.
