    I'll add, for my $0.002, that OHP also does a great job of hitting the traps when fully extended at the top ("shrug") in a way that is not reasonably possible with incline bench.

    Double progression

    Just curious, when programming double progression, why would you program sets+weight or reps+weight?

    Example 1.

    Add weight and reset sets
    Week 4: 2x6

    Certainly not the worst I've seen.

    I'd probably switch OHP and incline DB press. Your OHP is gonna suffer coming straight after bench, so prioritize bench on Workout A with a lighter DB incline...
