Danny Vega – Off Season Week 4 – Bench

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.


Week 4 off season bench in the books. This is the best my bench has ever felt. I’m hitting weights I haven’t hit for this many reps for multiple sets. Body weight is at 238 right now. I beat week one which was 2×4@345 and have gone up on all the accessory work too.

Same thing goes for tomorrow and the rest of this week: beat week one’s numbers.

Bench 45×15, 135×8, 175×5, 225×3, paused 275×2, 315×4, 335×4, 355×4, 355×4

Sown set 315×9. Technically 10 but my spotter grazed the bar with his fingers so I’m not counting it. Pissed off about this one bc I had it and this would have been a rep PR.

Close grip bench 2×6@295,310

DB Incline bench 2×6@100, 120

DB flye 2×15@40

JM Press 3×10@125,145,155
