What helped your bench the most?

Obviously the bench press is going to progress much slower than the deadlift and squat. Currently my numbers are 435/245/500. I can't help but notice my bench is proportionally much smaller and being outpaced a lot quicker than the other two. I've done my research, and incorporated accessory...
