I thought that it was meant to be done for reps because of the pressure that it puts on the shoulders. The same thing as with the ultra wides. It's just when I hear about guys like Hoornstra and Winters maxing out on inclines for a rep I get confused. Is the incline supposed to be done for reps or for singles? Is it just dependant on how you feel?
Nothing is meant to be done for reps. Just kidding. When I used incline as part of my ME bench it would be for singles. I thought the nature of ME work is singles.
If you are looking to move up a weight class using a rep max is fine for ME work.
Do what makes you stronger.
This will change with your needs will at certain times.
For example, This past cycle almost all my set were of 8 reps for the bench. I was able to hit a PR after a long injury rehab
DO reps for a while and see what happens. IF you feel nothing bag inclines all together and try some thing else.

In one of his interviews Hoornstra told the reader about his incline and close grip numbers. I don't think he trains westside. I think he just goes very heavy on his chest day.
