Thread: Incline angle

What angle do you use for incline bench press??

I currently adjust the bench at 55 degree angle for incline bench press exercise.
I have gone as high as 70 degree angle to overcome the issue my upper-pec development (low muscle insertion points in upper-pecs).
The higher you go, the more of a shoulder workout this exercise becomes; however, the benefits are also inarguable. It does fill the upper-chest. Using a lighter weight and increasing rep range gave me the benefit over risk at 70 degree angle.

Why is it my incline rm is approaching my flat rm? Flat is 2 rm at 275 and incline is 2 rm at 245. I've had major shoulder problems to the degree that I couldn't lift right arm above my head without dislocation. I've came a long way in shoulder strength but I just feel like my flat should be greater.

I have been putting bench on # 2 so maybe 30 degrees?? Not to steep but been doing dumbells and upper chest development and strength have improved quite a bit

I aim for 8-10 every set! If I can do 12+ I'll up the weight! Just watch how many sets you've done,
Ps if I have a spotter I'll go a little heavier and get at least 5-6 by myself and get a spotter to help with the next few reps!
8-12 reps is the range for hypertrophy, I'm guessing that's what your going for??

I go 30degree, mabey 45degree for flys but even then they ysyally at 30degree, I always use dumbells for incline too, cant feel shit with a barbell, and hammer incline is a fav of mine
