Comments: New Phase – Peaking.  1st time trying a peaking phase.  Created with the help of Mike Israetel.  1st time benching this heavy in a few months.  Shoulder hurt on the lighter weights, but stopped once I got to 285 lbs.  Sets felt fairly easy, 300 was good, 320 was a little struggle, 325 my butt started to come up off the bench.  I need to get my legs back more so that won’t happen.  Had some good spotting from Josh and Heath and a little coaching from Shawn Frankl himself. Done at Big Iron Gym.
