Danny Vega – RPS Redemption meet prep – 5/9 pulls and last DELOAD

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

3 weeks out…upper body is still feeling beat up, but this next 3 weeks will be enough to recover and peak properly. I’m really excited right now.

5/9 Pulls

I had already hit 675 at Michigan barbell, but I wanted to hit it cleaner and faster, which I did. 700 is going down. 

1. Deadlift 135*3, 225*3, 315*2, 405*1, 495*1, 585*1, 675*1 smooth

2. BB shrugs 315*8, 365*8, 415*8

Done. This week I’m deloading. I won’t bore you with that. Next week we’re hitting openers and I plan on making them look like warm-ups.
