What angle do you guys prefer for Incline DB press? I guestimate the adjustable benches in my gym go from Flat to 30 and 40 degrees. What do you guys think, 30 or 40 degrees for incline press?

Mac I like anywhere between 0 and 40ish depending on what I'm doing.
Sometimes if I'm doing incline and flat both that day I'll usually set the angle more extreme, if I'm just planning to go volume and only do one angle on bench press I'll usually use something around 20-30* whatever the lowest incline setting is.
I really like that angle for DBs, for whatever reason when using BB I actually like a bit more of an angle.
Try a few things and feel it out, I can always feel right where I'm hitting when I'm benching.

Today was day 8 of the DTP 4-week program for me. After the first week my weight was the same, my waist size was the same (didn't gain fat) but I look pumped so I think it was a good week overall. The first two workouts were pretty solid but I wasn't "annihilated" like Kris says because I wasn't doing a good job of guessing what weights to use for the sets. I did better on the third and fourth workouts and pushed myself a lot harder. I think it'll be a good program.
I'm not doing any supplements but trying to follow everything else.

Where did everybody go?
Guys went everywhere. Might take a bit for it all to settle out.

Bench press worthless? You'll never get comparable development from pushups. There's a lot more muscle to be reaped out of the bench as long as you can do them. Keep the reps up high and the weight moving smoothly and you should be okay. I'm with them on the pec deck. Not much muscle to be had there even though it can top off the pec pump you get from benches.
