Lisa Guggisberg-Last Bench Before RPS US Open

I am currently 1 week out from the RPS US Open in San Diego, CA where I will be competing at 114lb raw with wraps. I am getting pretty excited. We fly out on Thursday.


Warm up:

  • Band pull a-parts
  • Front/Side Raises
  • Birddogs
  • McGill Sit ups


Bar x 10

95 x 5

125 x 3

150 x 1 Opener

170 x 1 Second attempt


Bench is going great.  I have never been more confident about my bench.  Todd and I have been really working hard on my form and I have been applying the cues Paul Key gave me.  I’ve added in a lot of dumbbell work including floor pressing, incline and decline work and flat bench.  I usually do these for sets of 4 for 12-15 reps on my accessory days.  Hoping I can put together a decent bench this meet or as Brian said hit some high school sophomore weights.
