Several years ago you mentioned the concept of rowing the bar down. It's helped my benching and I've been using it since. I have noticed an increase in stress placed upon my brachialis. When I bench heavy raw that's usually one of the areas that picks up a minor strain. I haven't been doing any form of hammer curl but have been thinking about adding it for this reason.
