    I do incline first. No reason in particular. Just do.

    If your upper is lacking you should prioritize and hit upper 1st imho... other wise just mix it up like others have said

    i would think that it depends on which part of chest lags the most...for instance if your upper chest is lagging, then you would do 2 warmup sets of incline presses and then 3 or 4 heavy sets...this is effective because you are fresh and have a lot of strength at the beginning of your workout, rather than hitting a lagging bodypart at the end of your workout when you are at your weakest.

    If your incline or decline bench is only a few degrees different in elevation to your flat bench, it doesn't matter what you do first because they are all the same movement. Just like doing 9 sets of normal benchpresses.

    i think that one is still an opinion that has yet to be proven...im gonna stick with what professional bodybuilders have been doing for decades and has proven to work and that is incline, flat, and decline bench.

    Yep, there is no order.
    Flat incline decline... mix it up. you'll be doing each one eventually, so there isnt much of a big deal
