30 Degree Incline Bench?


#1

I am starting a new program I found on here. Maximal growth lifting or something. Anyways, it has one day as narrow stance squats and 30 degree incline bench. I don't understand the signifigance of it being 30 degrees. Can anyone enlighten me please?

Incline bench, doesn't necessarily have to be 30 degrees as long as it's an incline.


#3

30 deg is kinda a low incline, hits the chest a lil more than a "normal" incline bench of 45 deg


#4

I then question, why this program does not have a regular bench... And I'm not one to tweak with programs that work, but would it be ok to just do regular bench instead of that or no?


#5

I would do it with the 30° bench. It will still hit the pecs.

Well do you have a 30 degree incline bench? if you do why tweak with the program when you don't have to
