Danny Vega – USPA MEAT prep – Week one pulls

I am preparing to compete at the USPA Veterans Classic on November 15th. I will be competing fake raw with wraps in the 220 weight class.

I know. That olive drab next level tee looks awesome. If you like it, get one for yourself here

I’m still sore. Everywhere. Today the volume stayed high. I pulled some light sumo at about 65% because I pulled a heavy single just a few weeks back. This workout was brutal. My back is fried. I’m looking forward to hitting the airdyne tonight and tomorrow to help with recovery.


Hip circle,  KB swing, KB Goblet squat, bird dogs, some more dynamic warm-up stuff. 

Sumo pulls 135*2, 225*2, 315*2, 405*2, 4*4@445

Deadlifts paused at shin 3*5@405. I suck at these. Next time I’ll start lighter to practice form before my work sets. 

Rack rows 225*10, 275*10, 275*10

McGill chins 15*1

 GHR 3*15
