    Incline bench is higher than flat bench

    well I got my 5rm on flat bench up to 200lbs.But since i came off 5x5 ive been doing a more hypertrophy related program my 5 rm max has gone down to like 180 lbs. Recently ive been doing high reps on incline bench. I managed to do 180lbs 5 times on incline, and it felt easier than on flat bench. I dont know of anybody else that has a higher incline number than flat bench. Im sure once i switch back to 5x5 the weight will go back up, but until then, is this a signifier that i have weak triceps?

    could be weak triceps, or strong front delts ... where in your routine are you doing your flat and incline presses ?

    If its really a concern just switch the order in which you perform the exercises. If you're satisfied with your development I wouldn't worry about the discrepancy between exercises because they are just that; exercises.

    Add some declines.

    Maybe break out a shoulder day and chest/back day. Put the inclines with the shoulders.

    my incline destroys my flat.. it can be common as, depends on the person! my reason is i never do flat so i would hope my incline is a lot stronger.

    yes I think my chest may be lagging behind my shoulders. I switched to incline bench because i wanted to increase my upperchest. What lags the most is probably the lower or the center of my chest, so i should do regular bench, someone reccomended dumbell, is that better? i know when i do dumbell bench i can feel it in my upperchest and shoulder areas from just stabilizing the weights. Im thinking decline or barbell bench.

    btw my routine is a fullbody routine(harbringer hypertrophy) i switch the order of the exercises almost every workout. Some days incline bench first, some days military press first,etc.
