Extremely weak bench press compared to squat and deadlift

I am 6', roughly 182 lbs, and 20 years old. Ever since I started lifting (3.5 years ago), I made very fast progress with my squat and deadlift, but my bench has always been incredibly weak. In August 2018, my best lifts were 355 lb squat (with belt), 200 lb bench, 500 lb deadlift (with belt), I...

Anyone have experience with this program? I'm thinking about giving it a go to get my squats moving (legs have always been my weak point).

How do you get in belt-less work, and do you wear a belt for accessory lifts? I'm thinking this is an individual thing. I'm doing the GZCL method and plan to do closer to the minimum amount of reps for each exercise on some days. Then I'll lower the weight and get in a lighter set with no belt...

Strain in core from wearing belt too tight?

Has anyone ever had this or are you familiar with this? I've never read about it or heard about it. I get some muscle strain under my ribs or a little bit more to the side. It happens when I'm doing back squats and flexing against the belt on the hard reps.

How come nobody uses 5x5

I've always wondered why nobody (after the newbie stage) uses 5x5 on Bench. I always see people say that there are "much better" programs out there. Although I do think you should modify 5x5 a little bit, I don't understand why it seems like it's looked down upon like it's only for newbies.
