Extra Reps for Strength?

This is a question regarding routines like Madcow's and Texas Method. If the last set on a specific movement seems easy, would it be beneficial or counter productive for me to perform additional reps (Ex. Supposed to do 305x5, feel able to do 305x7)? I'm not saying go to failure, but if energy is...

Shoulder Imbalance During Bench

Basically lately I've been noticing that my front delts are getting really sore during the bottom of my bench and I'm starting to get concerned.

Strange oblique sensation while squatting

When I'm squatting near my limit I often get a sensation in my obliques that is somewhat like small rubber band snaps or tiny electric shocks. It's not painful just a little disconcerting. Does anyone else get this? Does anyone know what it is? Should I be concerned at all? Thanks!
