I read many times that raw benchers should not "flare the elbows out like a chicken".
As I stated here :
I found FOR MYSELF that flaring the elbows and don't bench like a geared lifter suits best for me. And I can tell you that I flare out A LOT ! Maybe too much...???
But after reading again and again the same advices, I wanted to know why this is so recommended to keep elbows at a 45degre (approx.) angle ?
