Incline Bench Press
Just wondering what you guys take on the incline barbell press movement. See some guys stop @ the chin, see some come a little lower, and some come all the way down to chest with bar. Which is safest, most effective? Not really trying to argue which is better bb or db. I think they both serve a purpose and have places in the chest routine."Liver stress is weakness leaving the body!!"

well Personally I like coming all the way down when I can. Sometimes my shoulder is sore and only come till my arms are at 90 degrees

For me its bring the bar down close to my chin. The bar doesnt hit my chest when performing inclines at around a 20-30 degree angle.

I bring in down till it touches the top of my chest near my collar bone. If I don't I just feel I'm cheating myself. This is coming from a guy with multiple shoulder injuries and surgeries.

I too have endured shoulder pain throughout my years of lifting. Think everyone has. Was wondering if anyone could testify to the mechanics of possible shoulder impingement( a bad thing) performing this movement. I would speculate deep reps would put the shoulder more @ risk. @ the same time I would think going deeper would recruit more muscle stress(a good thing). Understand that I use both bb and db on the incline. I also want to get the max out of the incline bb when it is up in my chest rotation wo becoming a volunteer for shoulder surgery.
