military press or incline bench?

For a while I was doing military press as a supp to my bench wokout. :

bench 5x5
mil 3x8
dips 3x8

Now I’ve switched to incline bench. Does this make sense? Do these two workouts do the same thing? Should I have both of them in my workout?

I’d stick with the military.

Do incline instead of military press on chest day. Do military on your shoulder day.

If you keep your elbows back on the military, you can do both. Surprisingly little front-delt overlap.


You’re an athlete, are you not? Do militaries.
