I am seeking advice on what I should be working on for my bar path for the bench press. Here is some photos with the bar path traced for each rep.
Rep 1  Descent is more vertical and closer to the feet. Ascent comes closer to the head in a diagonal pattern.
Rep 2  Diagonal Pattern on the descent and the ascent very similar to the ascent on rep 1
Rep 3  Same as rep 2 with slight deviation
Rep 4  Same as rep and rep 3 with with slight deviation
Rep 5  Descent is the same as reps 24 ascent comes closer comes closer to the head
So I am confused as to how my bar path is supposed to look. Should every rep look like rep 1? Or reps 24? Or the last rep?

Reps 3 and 4

Rep 5

How much weight is this? and corresponding intensity. All the reps should look the same? Do you "reset" after each rep or are you making each rep as fast as possible???

It is 80% for set of 5, with each rep paused, so it's a pretty hard set. As far as resetting I don't quite know what you mean by that. Do you mean resetting the scapula position and the arch?
I certainly don't try to do the reps as fast as possible. I pause for a moment at the top of each rep.

What was I meant. Kilos? It looks good, but perhaps work on that initial starting position for the first rep.

113 kg
I was thinking the same thing about the starting position.
