Thats expected after most of your pushing muscles are exhausted. Thats why he wants you doing bench first, that will be your strength measurement. As your bench increases, your accessories may not *seem* to increase much, if any, because your exerting more force on that first movement. For the accessory stuff just focus on really feeling the muscle, it doesnt know how much weight is on the bar or machine, just how hard they have to work.
