Danny Vega – 2015 Off-season One Layout

Currently in Off-season mode. Will be preparing for a meet in the late fall after this 10 week block. 

As I wrap up my vacation and week off from training, I have laid out my goals and template for this first offseason of 2015. I am starting to get antsy to get back into training. It’s just in my nature. Plus, it really helps with the meet hangover.

The goals for this first offseason are pretty straightforward:

1. Increase my bench and keep my shoulders/elbows healthy.

2. Increase work capacity in the squat and get comfortable squatting in wraps again. I’ll be wrapping on my top sets from week one.

3. Pull sumo on my second lower body day. I’ll only do this 2 out of every three weeks to save my hips.

Other than that, I plan on handling more volume than I’ve ever handled in previous offseasons. 

Here’s what the layout will be:

Day 1: Combo Lower

Pause squats

Day 2: Bench

Paused bench
Closegrip Ss w BTN pulldowns
Chest supported rows
Bench dips
DB rear raise

Day 3: Lower accessory

Front squats
Sumo pulls
Kb goblet squats
Kb swings
Leg extensions
Leg curls

Day 4: Upper accessory

DB incline
Weighted pull-ups
Seated rows
Hammer curls
Band extensions
YTU and band scape retractions

Like I said, lots of volume, especially on bench. Let’s see how my body responds.
