Pushing towards a plateau

benchpress21[1]Today my bench press buddy and I hit the big plates.  My numbers were pretty good as I got 235 for one, only 5 pounds off my recent 1RM of 240 pounds.  I probably could have grunted and groaned a 240 rep out.  Despite the decent numbers I still have something rumbling inside my left shoulder.  If I try to concentrate on keeping my elbows closer to my body it seems to minimize the discomfort but I still can feel it somewhat.
