Danny Vega – Off-season Week 5 – Deadlift + some fluff n’ buff

I am training for the RPS Redemption/XPC Qualifier on May 30, 2015. I will be competing in the classic raw 220lb weight class. I plan on gaining 10-12lbs over the next 10 weeks, and this is the plan. If I am not gaining about 1lb a week, I will adjust up or down. 

Protein Carbs Fat Kcals
Training Days 240 550 100 4150
Off Days 260 175 200 3535

Weight is up to 224-225 bc I’ve been eating a bit more than what I had planned to speed things up. I’ve been a bit more strict this week (except for my birthday, when I ate all the cookies). Just trying to maintain this weight for a week or so.

This morning I combined two days of training, as I’ll be going to Disney this weekend to celebrate my son’s and my birthday.
