Still Learning

Squatting with bands I have noticed that it really taxes my upper body (shoulders and arms) more than squatting for reps (pump phase) with a lighter weight. Today I tried to do Bench Press. No Go...

Warm Up
Bench Press - 135lbs/12 reps, 225lbs/10 reps, 315lbs/1 rep.

Power Phase
Bench Press - 5 sets/1 rep/335lbs, missed on my 6th set.

At this point my left shoulder, triceps, bicep and forearm are throbbing with a dull ache. From now on I will be taking a day of rest or cardio between squats and bench press to let my upper body recover. Still learning.
