    Incline vs flat bench

    Would it be more beneficial for me to focus on incline more than flat bench in my program for size?

    Too many other factors at play to give an answer to that simple question

    Expand on your entire program

    Nope, bench press gives a lot more size development. But still do inclines because they hit the smaller upper portion that is difficult to hit otherwise and important for aesthetic pec shape/height.

    Bench works the entire chest, incline is mostly front delt and upper chest

    They both work the whole chest to a certain degree.
    I would do cycles of both say 8-12 weeks on one or the other.
    Experiment and see/feel where your trying to hit.
    How high you incline, and how you actually do the movement on grip width and elbow/upper arm positioning.
    I personally like a low incline for chest development and a wider elbow position will engage the pecs a bit more.
    Push the bar in line with the area of the chest your trying to hit with elbow position under the bar.
    If your just trying to get stronger a more tucked position is probably better as it help engage more shoulders and triceps.

    One or the other is flat by a mile. If you want actual help post your full routine.
    Experience, not just theory
