The Shoulder Incline gives the lifter a unique experience that makes training overhead pressing movements effective and more comfortable. Rogers Athletic considered the stress that is placed on the shoulder complex from sports and life giving the trainee adjustment options to account for discomfort, size of chest, flexibility, arm length, and more.

With the Set Extension Technology from Rogers Athletic, we can train the upper body pushing muscles from incline to overhead. If you have shoulder discomfort, the seat angle can be adjusted and the range limiter set to minimize the potential for pain. The unilateral design makes training around soreness from games or everyday life effective, efficient, and productive.

Coach Taylor’s go to exercise…

“The quick adjustments from shoulder press to incline in an easy seller to me with the Shoulder Incline from Rogers Athletic. Set the lifter up to complete 8-12 quality overhead reps to fatigue, then move the range limiter and seat for incline with the same weight. The pushing muscles will tire out quickly, and the intensity will ramp up your workouts in a hurry. I will superset this with shrugs before and independent hand rows on the Pit Shark Row-and-Pull for an efficient upper body session.”– Rob Taylor, Jr., Founder and Owner of SMARTER Team Training


Mike changes his training up with…

“Many of our younger athletes struggle to control dumbbells because their training age is limited. A great way to introduce them to pressing is through our Elevator sets on the Rogers Shoulder Incline, which allows us to hit several angles and ranges of motion on one piece. We begin with the seat forward, and the pins and seat angle set for shoulder press, our top floor if you will. As soon as the athlete finishes their set, they will stand up while we quickly change the seat position and pin position for a high incline press, our middle floor. After the athlete finishes their high incline set, we will adjust the seat and pins for incline press, our bottom floor, where they will complete their final pressing set.” – Mike Whitman, Director of Training

Alex keeps it creative with…

“The Shoulder Incline from Rogers Athletic is a great place to do another version of the elevator protocol, this time without having to move the seat or range limiter. This can be done at any of the three stationary settings – shoulder press, incline press, or chest press. Select on of those three movements, use about 50-55% of 1RM. These elevator reps consist of a 3 second pause at the top, middle, and bottom phases of the motion. For instance, with a standard shoulder press, hold the weight all the way up for 3 seconds, pause for 3 seconds with elbows and shoulders at 90 degrees, and finally pause at the bottom of the repetition, still holding the weight above the shoulders. This protocol works great on other Rogers Athletic pieces, such as the Power Squat Pro or Leg Curl, as well.” – Alex Walsh, Performance Coach


Riley enjoys this protocol the most…

“Using a weight that you can do 20-25 times perform 3 sets of 10 every minute on the minute (EMOM) increasing the weight 10 pounds each set. At the end of the 3rd set, strip the weight back down to the original and complete as many reps as possible.” – Riley Oharah, Former Performance Coach
