Does anyone use Scapular retraction to avoid lifting with the shoulders? Wouldnt that mean you have to use less weight?

prolly not much less, depending on how your form was before.. the more you used your shoulders before the more wt you will drop...

my shoulder blades are locked underneath me at all times. since i started doing this, and bringing my elbows down along side instead of flared out, my bench has gone up oh.. 80 lbs or so.
