Do you flare out your rib cage when bench pressing to achieve a bigger arch ?

Flaring out my rib cage and kind of like sucking my stomach in lets me get a significantly bigger arch when benching. On the other hand a lot of great lifters suggest to keep the rib cage down and brace the abdominal wall for all of the big 3 lifts, which is impossible to do, with flared out...

Slingshot vs Close-Grip for Lockout

Hi Guys, I've searched far and wide (on bb.com and via Google) for an answer to my question and have unfortunately been unsuccessful. Essentially, I'm wondering what you think (i.e. your opinion) would have the best carry over into a stronger bench press; in particular the lockout. Is it...

I'm doing more and more research into Broz training philosophy, but it seems from what I can tell, even he doesn't seem to recommend bench pressing every day.
