Danny Vega – Off season Week 7 – Squats

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.


Today was the last day of this 8 week bench focus. It’s been a lot of fun, but after next week’s deload I’ll be ready to get started on a more traditional off season. SSB is tough but I’m enjoying using it on alternating weeks due to the two days of benching. My shoulders have felt great so I think I’ll still do this next off season. Everything feels light which is exactly where I should be right now.

SSB Squat 55×10, 145×6, 195×4, 235×3, 285×1, 315×5, 375×5, 415×5, 445×5

High bar squat 325×5, 345×5, 375×5

KB Goblet squat 88×10,10,15

Wtd glute ham 3×8@25, 45, 45
