I very rarely ever do flat bench. I always do Incline Barbell press on chest days.
Once in a while I get on the flat bench and as I get stronger on the incline, I also get stronger on the flat bench.
I've heard that its better to concentrate on incline bench. Is this true?

Incline Barbell press VS. Flat Barbell Bench Press

Good advice young-squatter.
Alternate between the two and alternate your exercises for the chest. Incline, decline and flat bench presses all work the chest muscle but each incline level works different parts of the chest muscle.
Working all three incline levels will give you a nice overall chest program.
