Danny Vega – Powerbuilding Week 2 – Bench, Pulls, OHP

Over the next several months I will be the Guinea pig for some new ideas on training and diet that I will perfect with the help of Tucker Loken and Brian Carroll. This will be the groundwork for an upcoming ebook that we will release in the near future.


I’m having a lot of fun right now. This type of training is great. With Everything that’s going on in my life right now, it’s been a great stress reliever. I made my first dietary adjustment. Hopefully I’ll come in a little bit leaner this Saturday.
