Is this a bad idea? More bench more chest but still emphasize front delts

I like to alternate which I’m going harder on, if that makes sense...

But overhead press is such a good movement...Hits the entire shoulder girdle, traps, chest, tris

For incline bench, what I do is a put a bench in one of the cross fit style racks, that my
Golds gym now has (so it’s not a dick move that I’m taking up a squat rack, because there’s no shortage of squat/deadlift area)I set the bench on the first notch up from flat...This really is a better angle for me, then the steep incline bench they got, that’s really almost overhead press anyway lol...

I do the same thing but the angle is 30 degrees hate the 45 degree incline
