    none at all if thats what you want to do.

    depends on what you mean by flaring.
    Keeping the elbows flared througout the entire movement (bbr style to the high chest) may not be great on the shoulders. BAsically the best technique is to take it low, which requires tucking the elbows slightly. Then as you press up over hte face the elbows flare out to get under the bar fully and allow a stronger lockout.
    I call it catch and throw, but thats me :)
