Overview

The incline bench pull is an exercise that targets the traps. To perform the incline bench pull, you will need a bench, a barbell, and some weights. Start by lying on the bench with your feet flat on the floor and your knees bent. Hold the barbell in a pronated grip (palms facing away from you) with your hands shoulder-width apart. Lift the barbell off the rack and position it over your chest. Keeping your arms straight, slowly lower the bar behind your head until it touches the back of your neck. Pause for a second, then slowly raise the bar back to the starting position. Repeat this for the desired number of repetitions, The incline bench pull is a great exercise for targeting the traps because it allows you to lift a heavier weight than you would be able to if you were doing a regular barbell row. It is also a more comfortable exercise for your shoulders than a regular barbell row, as you do not have to extend your arms fully overhead.
