Benchpress - a bit of a rut

My Ramadhan workouts are going along just fine. I'm still sticking to the basics of 5 sets each of squat, deadlift and benchpress. But the funny thing is... while I'm making steady progress with my squat and deadlift, my benchpress is stuck in a bit of a plateau i.e. I'm stuck lifting 22.5kg for 7 reps for 2 sessions in a row now.

By the fifth set I'm struggling to make 7 reps. I'm not overly worried, though. I know I just need to work on it more. And the benchpress is the final move I make after doing the squat and the deadlift. And the deadlift is taxing.

I'll see if I can break through the benchpress plateau come Monday.
