You identified the problem, 2 mins isn't enough of a rest for a max effort...... Sounds exactly like something I would do all the same!
305 will fall next time for sure

Great work on the bench press! Don't sweat failing on 305, I'm sure you'll hit it next time you attempt it. Give yourself 4-5 minutes next time. Great work all around!

Hell, I wish I could budge 305. You'll crush it! Great benching and smart move shutting 'er down. Better to be safe then sorry.

Outside! Max bench! Only 2 minutes rest! No shoulder pain! Woohoo!

Perhaps warm up with 225-255-285-305 with plenty of rest

Really solid OHP even if you were fresh. Had to chuckle on the curl fail haha
I actually did get a lift off for it Jim. I just stuck at a point I've never stuck before. The curl was only a fail because I shut down and went to the house lol.

No shoulder pain was by far the biggest win from that abbreviated session!!

Real Results 4-day Upper/Lower
W8 D2 Tuesday

Squat
5 x 5 x 235 +10lbs
These all felt really good. Depth was there and speed was good. They also moved my rack so I don't have to look in the mirror any more

High rack pulls (top sets with VG's)
225 x 5
315 x 3
405 x 1
495 x 5 x 3 +4 reps
Will add weight next time I do these.

Kneeling cable crunch
3 x 13 x 190 +3 reps

Seated calf raise
3 x 10 x 125 +5lbs
2 second hold on top

Thought that ugly headache was going to resurface after the first couple of sets of squats, but it subsided and we got in a pretty decent session.
