The first and most important consideration in “peaking” is understanding that the athlete needs “a lot of water under the bridge” to peak. And, I mean, the athlete needs a lot of water here. Nothing drives me more crazy than someone telling me that they are peaking for some low level crap lift or event. Before we can even begin discussing this “peaking” thing, the athlete has to be up the pyramid a little bit. In other words, you don’t peak for a 200 pound bench press: you simply bench press for a while, then ask someone to spot you and you make it. Now, a 1000 pound bench press, which is something I can barely imagine much less comment on, is going to demand some peaking.
