Danny Vega – Off-season Week 5 – lower assistance

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

Thursday lower assistance

Front Squat w the XE1  (imagine banded resistance, but it’s attached from your hips to your ankles. Great for speed and worked my hips) 55*6, 145*6, 235*6, 255*6 275*6, 305*6, took off XE1 and hit 325*5

Sumo pulls w/ XE1 225*3, 315*3, 385*3, 415*3, 445*3, 475*6 @RPE 6

KB Goblet squat  paired with KB swing 3*10@71, 71 plus XE1 with four bands. This was brutal

Sled dragging @225lbs – 4 trips up and back going backward, 4 trips up and back going forward. 8 sets total. Great conditioning. 

Jorge and I have decided to revamp our lower assistance days after this deload. I’ve accomplished everything I wanted to with the sumo experiment, so no more sumos. We will be increasing the loads on the main day,  and on the assistance day alternating between high rep high bar squats on one week and dynamic effort squats on another week.
