After reading through countless arguments, I stumbled upon this article which really drove the bench press home for me

http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/pres...es-solved.html

Much like I did with my deadlift, I will be starting from scratch and ensuring that my elbows aren't flaring, my grip placement is correct, and that the bar is touching my chest. And also making sure my wrists are in like with my forearms, since I've experience pain in them often after a few sets of benching.

Hopefully I can get to 185 x 5 sooner rather than later, but ultimately mastering proper form is more important than an arbitrary number.
