I havent really trained my bench since my meet a couple of months ago but my strength really hasnt dropped that much. I am assuming its from the overhead work.

I am thinking the same thing. I hit the 410 when I weighed 255 and was peaking for a meet. I hit a 385x2 and a 400 at 235 before my last meet. My usual training max was 390-395.
I am down to 225 so I was suprised that I could go in after training hard that morning and still hit 375. I had been doing military press for my upper body "strength" work but I am going to replace it with benching and see what happens. Thanks for reading my ramblings.
