My left shoulder kills me on flat bench. I stick with more incline sets now.
I use two boards on flat bench now. Going all the way to your chest does not improve the chest stimulation. once you reach a certain point, it just stresses your rotator cuff and shoulders/arms. Unless you are training for PL, try using boards or staying 2-3" above your chest on descend for a few weeks. You will find that your pecs feel it more and your shoulders will feel better. Use a slow tempo down, explosive upward
Inclines are the way to go for chest development. Most BB that I know do incline sets first and use flat bench for as an accessory movement.
