    I doubt you'd see much of a difference.
    First Bulk pics VS Starting pics, take a look!!

    How can you say that you would not see much of a difference? Alot of people lack upper chest development and guess what..they all think flat bench will suffice..Imo it also gives a more "fuller" look to the shoulder and i think it also targets the lower part of the biceps. If you want your chest to have the full package, please DO include incline presses and flies. Thankyouverymuch.

    Only real difference is incline uses more shoulders than flat bench

    The chest is not divided into upper and lower so in general you can't isolate the upper pecs, but for full development a muscle needs to be trained in different ranges and planes of motion and also realize how you perform the lift will also effect how much of your pecs you recruit.
