Thats true, you cannot improve on the 3 lifts which is squat bench press and deadlift.
As a powerlifter as myself, you cannot improve on the 3 lift. there is one lift that will suffer.
Maybe one reason that affect your bench press is beacuse you do bench press the next day you did your deadlift. When you do deadlift it affects your lower back and your lats and traps which has a great impact when you do bench.
Do you do heavy lift when you do bench or you arching your back?
