The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    what to do? stuck on bench

    I've been doing a pseudo-starting strength-esque program for awhile and my bench is stuck between:
    175 x 3 x 5 - 180 x 3 x 5

    current lifts:

    285 x 1 x 5
    225 x 3 x 5
    OH press
    130 x 5
    130 x 5
    125 x 5
    175 x 3 x 5
    150 x 5 x 3
    pull ups
    3 x 6
    3 x 11

    my bodyweight: 184

    I don't have any problems with anything but my bench and OH press, everything else goes up
    especially powercleans, they've felt very light lately and have been helping my deadlift
    I'm also willing to have my OH press sit around the same weight right now as long as my damn bench goes up

    could I use a method of conditioning that wouldn't interrupt my routine and help increase my bench?

    should I just eat more?

    should I deload on bench? I already deloaded 2x, 1 of the times was gaining lost strength

    here's a link to my journal, which shows what I've been doing for the past few weeks:
