Wow. Hitting ME bench more than 1x week is alot. I try to just have one speed bench day and one ME bench day. Sometimes I can't take that much volume and need to deload, but I'm an old fart. I would suggest that you take this entire week off before your meet. Let everything heal up for the platform.
