prioritizing upper chest
here's my routine for bulking up the upper chest please critique
incline smith (i don't have a partner so i have to use the smith)
db incline press
incline hammer strength (i was thinking about changing this to heavy incline flyes)
what do you guys think?

first i would alternate using dumbbells and barbells for ur incline to shock ur muscles every once in a while so one day do just dumbbell incline IMO i dont see y u would do barbell and dumbbell incline in one day but thats just me, keep in mind ur bulking so i would keep the reps between 4-8 per set maybe 2sets of 8 2sets of 6 and a set of 4 whichever u want. i would also do incline flys with half way heavy weight maybe keep the rep range b/t 8-12ish, and one more for upper chest that works great is dumbbell over head extentions where u lay like half way on the bench and raise the weight over ur head and chest. ill aways change each wk for ex. ill start with flat bench one day so ill be at full potential and be able to hit it hard then the next wk start with incline so ur at 100% strenght, other than that i think ull be good to go good luck bud

Yeah in regards to the smith machine, I would just ask someone there to spot me, especially if you are trying to build mass, the smith doesn't allow the stabilizer muscles to come into play.
