I am in the process of trying to get a tonometer, so I cant IOP myself just yet. But was just wondering if any of the weight lifters in here has had evidence that a Incline bench press is better than a flat bench for lowering a IOP spike? with breathing and not holding your breathe of course. Thanks

Incline bench press is a little better, but I am able to do both flat bench and incline without an IOP spike provided I warm up first and use good technique. I prefer to warm up with exercises where I'm standing up.

I don't do decline bench press anymore, and I don't really miss it.

I dont like decline either, even before my glaucoma diagnosis.. So you warm up with light weights? or light cardio first? Thanks sir

Cardio is my preferred warmup. (Light weights could be a suitable warmup for some people.)
