27 Feb Lisa Guggisberg-Some thoughts going into the XPC Finals at the Arnold
I am exactly 7 days out from the XPC Finals at the Arnold and 8 weeks out from the RPS US Open in San Diego, CA.[wa-wps]
Thank you Trey Vollmer for the pictures. Check out some of Trey’s work at Vollmer Visuals and look for a short documentary Trey is doing on Brian Carroll.
Not a normal training log as I am taking a deload this week. This week I’ve focused on staying healthy and maximizing my recovery so I come in fresh for the Arnold. I’ve been hitting accessory work, some hip mobility work and cardio to keep some blood following. I’m trying to stay busy and pass the time between now and next Saturday.
I have some really big goals and the stage at the Arnold is the perfect environment to accomplish them. The excitement and intensity will be crazy.
A few thoughts as I approach the Arnold:
I am excited to see my PRS teammates and meet lots of people but I am keeping in mind I didn’t come with the goal to socialize. I can’t have any distractions that could change my set plan. Social hour will come after I pull my last deadlift.
Stick to the plan:
My handler knows my goals and we’ve set a plan of attack which starts with warm-ups. If things start to go wrong we have a plan for that too.
Don’t lose confidence:
I’m not going second guess myself. I respect the weights but refuse to be scared of them. I have amazing support from my PRS teammates. Brian has coached me and written a program that timed me to peak at the right time. I’ve had access to invaluable coaching and knowledge from the best; Brian Carroll, Paul Key, Adam Driggers, and Jonathan Byrd just to name a few. My diet has never been better thanks to IFBB Pro Joel Thomas who is Stephen Hawking smart with nutrition. My entire meet prep has been smooth. The only excuse I have if I don’t succeed is my own failure to execute. I have the ability, I just need to have some controlled aggression come meet day.
