Acceptable for sub-optimal torso stabilization. The only situation in which hollowing would be preferable is catching chicks' eyes on the beach or in gymnastics. Think of where the bar is racked relative to the only rigid support structure in the torso (the spine) in prep for a press, push press, or jerk.... What supports it?
