Hey squatter, great effort in this log, as always.
Sorry to hear that your bench isn't progressing how you would like.
You know, with me, whenever I use a routine with higher volume bench press, such as 4 straight across sets of 5, I tend to stall out. And often I find myself regressing until I do a reset. Only to progress a bit and stall out again.

My point is that, I know I have experienced the same thing you have with the same bench rep scheme. A reset helped, but I stalled again after a couple weeks.
So, a reset is something you may consider.
Or.... You can consider dropping the volume a bit. Maybe only 3 straight sets of 5 or 4 ramping sets to a top set of 5.
Not trying to criticize the routine you are using or question it or it's author, I'm just sharing what I myself have personally experienced.
