Rotate your shoulders for a warm up, progressively work your way up in wieght with 3 warm up sets. Then Get a spotter and have him smack you. Get aggressive when you lift. The right attitude is often overlooked. And lift flat bench first. Remember with all lifts lift the bigest muscle or part of muscle then the smaller ones not the other way around.
Doing incline first is like doing wrist curls before your back workout (doesnt make sense)

You can try pre-exhaustion with flyes or dips. Also, when you're lying on the bench, try to pinch your shoulder blades together and push you're chest out, like full contraction phase of a cable row. This will put your chest more into play and take your front delts out of it.
When you're lifting, where do you get stuck? At the bottom, middle, or close to the top? You may have a weakness that you have to take care of before you can bench correctly.
Benching heavy weight is all about form and leverage. Guys with shorter arms are at a distinct advantage. Do you have long arms? Could be the problem as well. If you do, don't go all the way up. You want to get the stretch at the bottom, but going all the way up is a waste of energy. Go up until you can feel a good contraction, then go back down. This helped me a lot (I have long arms).
