29 Nov Danny Vega – Off season – week 2 bench accessory
I am currently in off season mode. Over the next 4 months I will be focusing on building my bench and working on some weak points until I start meet prep for next May’s RPS Redemption meet. I will be competing raw with wraps in the 242 weight class.
Welp, looks like my boys started an outbreak of the stomach bug in Miami. Monday my youngest got it, Tuesday the oldest got it. The minute my little one started vomiting, my wife and I began taking activated charcoal and diatomaceous earth every couple of hours. It didn’t prevent us from getting it–I felt my body fighting it (body aches, stomach cramps etc)–but I didn’t ever vomit.
My whole family got it on Friday and Saturday, meaning about 24 hours after contact with us, they got to enjoy the experience of violent vomiting and diarrhea. I did em a favor if you ask me. My dad lost 4 lbs.
Anyway, the reasons bring it up is that I didn’t get to squat again this week because of it. So when I squat next Friday, it will have been a full month since I’ve squatted. I feel really weird about that. Never gone that long. But I know the rest has done me well.
Friday I visited my friend Alex Ferret, a really strong young bencher down in Miami, and soon to be a really strong full power guy. He has a sick home gym set up and we were able to train for about an hour before I had to run back to my parents for daddy duty. Here’s what we did:
A bunch of warm up sets with kilo plates that I don’t recognize
Speed bench 6×2@207ish + 60lb of chain at the top
Close grip Spoto press 220,265,285,308,319,319×2
These all felt really good and I could have gone heavier but I will build slowly every week.
Closegrip burnout 220×19
1-arm cable extensions 2×15 each
