From all that I have read the Phenom isnt built well for multiply lifting. When I lift single ply I use the SKatana as well. I might be wrong, but that sounds like a pretty big size. I should wear a 52 @308. Multiply I use a Titan Assassain, which was a prototype shirt that Titan never made into full production. I have handled over 800 in the shirt, but had an off day on the bench at the last meet. Roger Ryan (Ryano on the board) has helped me a ton as I have gotten stronger in my shirt. Best thing I did was get rid of so much board work and work on taking weights to the chest. Made a big difference for me. I train in a private place as well, I would never make it in a public gym. If you get time post a few videos in your bench shirt and I will help you anyway I can. Welcome to MAB!!!!
Best meet lifts: 1040squat, 730 bench, 730 deadlift
Best total: 1040-680-730=2450
