I'm thinking back to the picture of a soccer player was it? I think you said you hoped to look like him when your cut was done. So, with benching, you may have to decide which you want more: A more defined, beefy chest or a big bench? I said may.
I would consider switching to DB bench and seeing how you like that, if your DBs go up high enough in weight.
Complication makes it easy to explain failure.
