    you need to work on more speed training on the bench. 50-58% of your arm 8x2 45sec rest between sets only once a week. Also try really squeezing the bar and pulling it apart

    Not enough information to make an educated guess.

    Overtraining maybe? Training shoulders the day before? Coming off a cycle? Injury?

    Could be any number of reasons. First thing I would look at is what are you doing differently that you werent doing before the slump.

    my bench goes up when i include decline, flat bench, db flys, db incline, hammer strength presses....

    and work on those triceps secondary muscles may be failing you
