    Incline harder than flat?

    Whats the general consensus? I dont like flat in general because I dont feel it in my chest enough while incline I feel it purely in the chest. What are your experiences?

    The smaller the angle, the harder it is. Flat being 180 degrees and incline being somewhere around ... i dont know, I got confused.

    Incline is more difficult for most. Decline is easier (than flat) for most.

    He didn't say it doesn't work your chest, he merely stated that on an incline you're bringing more shoulder work into the equation. That's factual.

    Also, how much you feel it in your chest on a flat bench can largely depend on your hand placement as well. A wider grip will result in more pec involvement, where a narrower is getting more tricep involvement.
