im maxing out on my bench next thursday. about a month ago i maxed out at 195lbs and im chasing the 200 (my pr). i hit 175 for 3 sets, got it up 5reps, 4 reps and 4 reps again. i want to try for 200 tomorrow but not sure if i should jump to 205 instead? what do yall think?

Warm up adequately (start with low weight reps of around 5, then go slightly heavier singles), try 200, if it goes up, try 205.

i usually only warm up with stretches and the bar for a set of 12 slow going down powering up. and i use 115 for like 3-5 quick reps. i usually do that to get my blood flowing. than rest like 2 minutes and start my max.

Why don't you go in and see how you are feeling and go from there? If you are feeling it, get a spot, and SFW
