Muscular activation during exercise is the key to developing muscle mass and strength, and the bench press exercise is a popular and widely used method of building upper body strength. In the article 'Influence of bench angle on upper extremity muscular activation during bench press exercise' published in European Journal of Sport Science, the authors set out to discover the effects on muscle activation during free weight barbell bench press at 0°, 30°, 45° and –15° bench angles. If greater or lesser angles enhance muscle activation, the results can be used to plan successful upper body exercise programmes.
