      I figured out how to train around my shoulder issue. For upper chest what can I do instead of incline dumbbell or barbell presses?

      you can try to find an incline machine or hammer strength incline. not much else will hit your upper chest other than that that i am aware of. well db pullovers when you keep your butt down and lay across the bench does also but may hammer your issue even more. all are worth a try

      I like doing my inclines in the smith machine. Feels like it lets me take my shoulders out of the lift and focus more on the squeeze in my upper pecs.

      There's quite a few version of cable exercises that can hit that area at all. I don't know the name of the exercise, so this might be a bit vague on the description of the movement, but using both cables and standing with a split stance centered between the cable machine and the handles placement is at the bottom of the machine you will make a sweeping motion forward with your arms in a fairly stiff position out towards a point I envision in front of my face. This probably didn't help, but I made the attempt lol.

      this is my main exercise for chest especially when i had healed from first shoulder surgery and awaiting word on the next shoulder fix. even with my shoulder barking on most everything else i could do smith inclines with 245 and not have big pain issues while the hammer strength iso incline machine tore up the shoulder every time.

      Cables work great for my shoulders. I can adjust angle to where it does not hurt. My shoulder (Partially torn labrum/minor tear) has pretty much rehabbed and I am 99%.

      I tore it doing heavy DB incline press and got out of shape. I can go light now with DBs but stick to cable for safety sake.

      I do loads of pushup bars with my feet elevated. I weight 230 so the higher my feet are, the heavier it feels. Hits my upper chest real good.

      Thats what I started to do this past chest day. I have to scoot my butt towards the end of the seat to take some stress out of the shoulder and I only had pain for one day so far thats the best that Ive found so far.

      I do remember doing that exercise in the past but the next day Im hurting so I tend not to use this exercise very often.

      I think from being forced off of gear(for fertility) and subsequently taking time off from the gym has led to my body healing my shoulder to probably 80%. I didnt think there was anything that could help heal it but it seems time off did a lot for me. Since I went hard with gear and training mid 2018 this is the first time back in the gym with my full attention and I feel great.

      ^^^That's awesome! I know the feeling. I just got off a 5 month break which was the longest I've ever taken a break from the gym besides moments in my military career where I didn't have access to a gym, but still got it in with flak vest training lol. Some times your body needs something like that. I'm about a month and a half back in full tilt and catching back up quick.
