Why just not incorporate it in a routine to make the workout more fun? I do it and it feels good. Why everyone's so upset?

You have a good body bud, I would probably look the exact same if I actually committed to cutting. But, my point of the "don't listen to a guy from a forum" is basically meaning go out and try them for yourself and actually SEE what you get results from.


I am not arguing that inclines are not useful. If you like inclines do them. If you like flat and inclines do them both. No hair of my chest. I was arguing that you can still properly develop your chest and shoulders with flat bench only.

I do flat bench for heavy 5s and 3s and usually incline Ill do 8-12 for no other reason than Im indecisive and I like to bench.

who fucking cares lol, this has been ongoing for 3 years..

i do mostly incline presses, why? because I find it is less strain on my shoulders and my chest gets more out of them, I go relatively wide with them and stretch and contract on every rep..

when i do flat, i keep it more narrow now to reduce rotator cuff issues for myself..

do whatever lift you feel more comfortable with and train the fucking hell out of it.. incline may be more effective for you then flat and vice versa..

i have one of the biggest chests if not the biggest (maybe not the strongest but i still press close to 400lbs) and i do ALLLL INCLINE work and include some flat here and there..

Is there any benefit to doing them with bar bells over dumbells? Or is it personal preference? Like I feel safer holding dumbells than a massive bar over my head.
Other option is the incline press machine and smith machine obviously.

DBs are far safer for the shoulder joint. Less torque, less abduction and ER at the GHJ, so less instability and Far easier glenohumeral ligament complex. -3X
