    Incline b.bell press? Where too?

    Just curious to see if anyone raises the bar above anywhere except their chest.

    I have heard of people pressing to their neck.

    That'd be a little akward to me. Cant say that I've seen anyone do that. I'm kinda curious also what this would work as oppose to pressing from the chest. I would think that someone couldnt press near as much weight that way.

    I stop about 2-3 inches from my chest. For some reason I am not flexable enough to touch the bar to my chest w/o some decent pain in my shoulders.

    tuck your elbows in?

    I cant imagine incline going from the neck up, i go from the bottom of the chest, feels most natural.

    I would guess that if you press from the neck ya gonna **** your shoulder up once you start adding some weight to the bar. If it doesn't feel natural, dont do it!
