I just saw a headline today that read something to the effect of a study that confirmed that 30 degrees is the best amount of incline for working upper chest with dumbells or barbells.
What do you think?
I think it is safe to say probably, as I've tested both 30 degrees and 45 degrees. I used to really stick to 45 basically because that was what I saw everyone else doing, but when I tried 30, I noticed there was less stress on the front delts and more stress actually on my upper chest.
I am looking to really pack on some thickness in my upper and inner chest at the same time during the rest of the year. That is one of the areas where I am lacking in comparison to my shoulders and mid/lower/outer chest.
But I am curious what you guys and gals' opinions are about the angles based on your experience and results?
