Dec 3, 2013 I was wondering, how much of a carry over does incline bench do for your flat bench ? Right now my flat bench for reps is about 100 pounds more than my incline bench? I have not been doing incline bench much since changing to powerlifting. But I have been reading and hearing how important it is for your bench. Should I do incline bench every week ? What about dips ? What rep range should I use ? I was thinking 5 ?
