      That is a great question. Generally, I don’t move up until I feel very comfortable with the weight I’m currently using, but I want to at least hit the bottom range of my rep set for all 3 sets. For example, I’m working a lot in the 6-8 rep range now. I would not increase the weight until I hit at least 3 sets of 6 reps. When I was benching 220lbs, I hit 8 reps on the first set, 7 reps on the second and 6 on the third. I increased the weight the next workout to 225lbs and started hitting about 5 reps per set.

      As for using a Bro Split, focus on one main move you want to increase and let the rest be “fluff movements” each workout. In your case, Incline Dumbbell Bench. This is the exercise you will put all of your stock into. The rest can just be high rep movements for bloodflow and “aesthetic” purposes. Also, you may consider hitting incline dumbbell bench twice a week. Do it on Chest Day as the main exercise and then Shoulder Day as the main exercise and spread these days apart, so you are well rested when performing it again.
