Basically, small people is much stronger on bench than taller people.
Why? because tall people has long limbs.
My weakness also is bench press because i am also 6ft tall.
Usually in a powerlifting competition most of taller people use wide grip bench press in order to press heavier in a short range motion when doing the press.
My suggestion is you do 6x6 bench press and increase every bench workout.
do also narrow grip bench press, reverse grip bench press and dips. This will help you get stronger in your press.
also do shoulder press behind the neck.
all this workout helps you get stronger in your presses that make you increase in your bench press.
