I feel as though I may have the bench too low. Can somebody please tell me the ideal angle for hitting the upper chest the best, and also any study to support this would be welcome. Thanks in advance.

I do two angles since complete upper chest development has always been a challenge for me. 45 degrees for stimulating my upper chest right near the collarbone. 15 degrees for mid to upper chest. Then I round it out with dips for the lower chest and call it a day."Every kiss begins with Kay" Delts

Thanks for the feedback fellas.
& @ DiamondDelts.. I didn't really kno that the 45 degree angle stimulates the area around the collarbone more.. Coinsidently that is where I am also lagging behind in my chest development, so I will make sure I hit a 45 degree angle first today in my chest workout. Thanks!
