Danny Vega – Off Season Week 6 – 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.


I’m 240 lbs. Mission accomplished. Time to stabilize and get my body used to this weight. I’m feeling stronger than I’ve felt in a LONG time. Bench feels like it did in high school when I would get stronger WEEKLY. Very exciting. Soon it will be time to bring all three lifts back into focus so let’s see if these gains last.

Bench 45×20, 135×8, 175×5, 215×4, 245×3, 275×1, 315×5,5,5,5,8

Close grip bench 285×5,5,10

Back down set 245×15

DB Incline 3×10@90

JM Presses 115×12, 135, 145, 145×10
