Not true.

By increasing your incline bench this facilities an increase in strength to other areas of the body. Not the least of which is heavy shoulder pressing as well for your pectorals do tie into your deltoids.

I've found that a heavy incline = heavy military press. At least it helps.

Tom, the program isn't bad. The rep scheme is pretty much similar to what I use, excepy I'm keeping reps LOOOOOW atm (3-5).

Today I did whatever I felt again.

The absense of the rigidity of a program feels good.
Worked biceps/back/hamstrings

Barbell Curls
DB Curls
Hammer Curls

Wide grip Pullups
Chinups
Bent over rows

Lying leg curls
seated leg curls
hyperextensions

Programs are great, but I hear what TheJake is saying. Sometimes just wandering around the gym and working whatever you feel like working that day is fun and I do it when I'm in between programs. I look at it as ****ing around but still getting something done.

Bench works your deltoids also, so why try to fatigue them by doing another excerise?

Tom -
Because an incline changes the emphasis.

That's like saying why to concentration curls when you've already done barbell curls??

You do different exercises to stimulate different areas for growth.

LB -
That's exactly what I'm saying man. I go back to America in two weeks and I don't have a new program worked out. So until I do, it's just maintaining my gains and trying to increase my bench/squat/deadlift.

So, i'm confused, why are you trying to get your muscles to grow? A strength routine isn't looking for muscle growth. Incline might hit the front and side delts a little different, but not so much that i think it should be included in a strength training routine. Bench press also hits the same delts. If you are truly looking to increase your bench, i would say work very hard on your tri's with close grip bench bress and or jm presses.
