Hi I’m international student in Ireland. I’m asking about the meaning of the word “flex”. I know that It has two meaning. 1. Bend. 2. showing off. Do you guys use second meaning of flex frequently? and Could someone not know about second meaning??

Flex your muscles is kinda showing off your muscles but I can't see it meaning showing off in any other context. I'd say stick with bend.
