Single arm incline press is an upper-body workout that targets the pectoral muscle. Because balance may be an issue, this variation is generally performed using lighter weights for moderate-to-high reps like 8-12 reps per set or more in conjunction with exercises for the chest or upper body.
A single arm incline press is an alternative to the dumbbell bench press, in which you push one arm at a time overhead. It is more demanding on stability and balance than a standard dumbbell bench press as the body is required to keep a steady position across the bench.
