Horo, If my memory serves me correctly I’m sure Bull wrote awhile ago about a different approach to bench that I found to work quite well. As you may already know with body sculpting it’s about making the lift harder not easier as to achieve as much hypertrophy as naturally possible. His technique is as follows:

Always have someone to spot you with this. Postion yourself on the bench so that when you bring the bar down instead of hitting the lower or middle part of your chest try bringing it down so that you stop just above your throat. It is extremely uncomfortable at first for it goes against what you are used to, but why not try it?

This is an old Vince Gironda works well for upper-chest…but as KM states always have a spotter.
