If you are having trouble with pain in your shoulders when you incline bench press it could be a simple form correction that can get you back on track.
Most people forget that by pinching your shoulderblades together you are creating more stability in your upperbody, especially with heavier weight. You also want to make sure that your elbows are not flaring out away from your body too much as well.
If your goal is strength try sticking to a low rep range of 2-6 reps per set. For muscle gain, kick it up to 12-15 reps per set.
