Hey I have been working out for about 5 or 6 months straight and am looking to go to a PL meet in June. I am looking to break a national record for my weight class/age. The previous record was 264 and i just put up 275 this weekend, but i guess that in meets you have to do a pause bench and i heard that was harder. I just wanted to know if that is gonna be harder than a regular bench. Basically, how much harder is a pause bench than a regular bench? Will my max go down?

Any advice would be appreciated thanks.
