Thanks Jim. Had another conversation, this time with the owners today. I'll give details after the break.

I see with the Brute press being assistance. I assumed it was a strongman type thing you were doing. How about this, every third week or so, do the Brute press first, then bench? Once you've grooved bigger weights doing them after benching might still keep them inching up. Then another bump on the next third week, etc. Or flip it with OHP on OHP days instead. Just a thought.
Just tell me to shut up if you're sick of my thoughts! I'm like Columbo. "Eh, just one more thing....). I can't help it sometimes.
Haha, no worries Mike, keep the ideas coming. It is a strongman thing, but until I can press 225 overhead for reps, specialized training is more just to have fun than anything else.
