Precision with Barbell Press for Structural Balance Testing

Today hit 5 sets of 6 on 45 degree incline BARBELL press. Here's why:
Barbell is a more precise "mother exercise" to use for our structural balance testing. I don't want to do flat bench but I'm willing to do incline since per Poliquin is more "athletic". Incline DB was a good idea but there's too much variable to be used as a mother lift. Barbell is precise. Control at least 4 seconds down.
In the calculator on the app you'll be able to program any reps. For starters I'm going to use somewhere between 3 and 6 reps.
80kg (176) for me was my limit with good form for 6 reps controlling down each rep
I'll probably end up using 5 reps for a simple 5 x 5 workout in my program. I'll update the calculator later today.
