Default incline bench instead of flat on Generic bulking routine ?

hi folks i just started doing generic bulking routine a week ago, still on deload week, i just wonder can i change flat bench to incline and still keep the ohp in the routine, the reason i said this i had a sternum injury 4 months ago from dips, so when i do flat bench sometimes the pains comeback, i dont have this issue on incline bench and ohp, is it okay if i do incline instead ?

There's a lot of overlap between the two but it can be done. How much clavicular head and anterior delt development do you want? How much is too much?

You could do a low incline (if you can do it pain free) and/or do lateral raises instead of OHP. Also do rear delts for balance-- good general advice, but even moreso if you double up on incline and overhead presses.

Exercise selection is individual and GBR is an example only

Thinkg compound chest vs. specific movement and pick as needed

Thanks for the answer but today i tried bench again i didnt felt any sternum pain, i think this because of somedays i feel stiff or i dont stay upright as i do everyday so that days i might feel sternum pain, but it was okay. I wil keep doimg benching for now
