5/3/1: Wave 3 Week 2 Bench Press

Evening (All Notation: Weight x Reps x Sets ):

Dead Benches (195) (clustered, 25 seconds between reps): 95x3, 115x3, 135x3, 155x2, 175x2x5. Done at 90% 1RM. On the last 2 sets of the last 5, the second rep was lower and tougher at the top. So, either I have to adjust the volume or I might be close to hitting the wall on this movement.

1-Board Press (235.5 Projected Max)(Adjusted Max 225): 185x3, 195x3, 205x3 (Rep Out Set). Got the required 3 reps on the last set, not the desired 5.

Rack Pulls 2" Below The Knees (365): 275x6x3. Done at 75% 1RM.
DB Rows (Elbows Out): 45x7x4. Form was good on the rack pulls, but 6-rep sets sucked me dry. Didn't make the rows easier.
