Danny Vega – Off-Season Week 8 – I don’t even lift

I am training for the RPS Redemption/XPC Qualifier on May 30, 2015. I will be competing in the classic raw 220lb weight class.

Week 8 Bench

1. Bench Touch and go 5×3@305,325,340,355,355 (failed on 3rd rep)

2. Paused Bench 5×3@295,315,330,330,330

3. Tate Press 35×10, 3×10@50

4. Seated Overhead tri extension 50×10, 3×10@60

Felt good during warm-ups but I lost it when it got heavy. My only explanation is that I helped a friend move for 3 hours on Saturday, and walked about 3 miles at Busch Gardens on Sunday. I should have known it would be a crappy day when I weighed in a pound and a half lighter this morning. I should have stuck to the RPE scale after my first heavy set, and lowered the weight. Anyway, enough of my bitching.

Here are a few of my favorite training tracks. It would be impossible to make a comprehensive list in less than 5 hours, so here are just a few of my favorites:

1. Sepultura – Ratamahatta

2. GZA – Shadowboxing

3. Eric B & Rakim – Know the ledge

4. A Tribe Called Quest – Scenario

5. DMX – Get at me dog/Stop being greedy

6. Outkast – Da art of storytelling part 2

7. RATM – Killing in the name of

8. Redman – Time 4 sum aksion

9. 50 Cent – Heat

10. Pretty much every Run the Jewels track
