I don't have any experience with bench speed days, nor do I even take the bench press that seriously. But if I was to offer advice, I'd recommend the same thing I do for the lifts that I do really care about, like overhead pressing or squatting. When I reach a sticking point, I drop some weight off the bar and build back up. This allows you to recover and build momentum. I would also make a slight [emphasized slight] change to the way you do the lift. Perhaps build back up with a narrower grip, or a wider grip, or a different angle on the bench. This allows you to maybe find the sweet spot on your grip, or just invigorate your training again, or work on a weak point without actually changing the lift.
