31 Aug Lisa Guggisberg- Temper Tantrums & Speed Benching-Week 5 of MEAT Prep
I am currently getting ready for the October 3rd RPS meet in Fort Myers, FL. I am not cutting weight and going in at 123 weight class with wraps.
Had a little bit of a temper tantrum this week. Attempt my opener of 335# Set up was off, came off the rack jacked up, went a quarter down and said fuck this and came back up. Let out a PR of f-bombs. Todd started laughing and I am not sure if he was laughing because he was afraid he was going to be the next target of my wrath or because watching an angry elf is just funny shit, probably the latter of the two. I felt better after blowing off some steam, re-cooped mentally and went back to it. Dropped the weight to 315# for a little mental boost.

Friday Night Bench Speed Work
I’ve added in speed work to my program this time and already seeing a big difference in my bench along with tweeking my set up.
Double black monster mini bands for 9 sets of 1 (Singles) at 95#
If you have ever done bench speed work you know that the first rep is the hardest to perform fast and to get in the right groove. Took me up until the 5th single to hit the right groove. Speed has come a long way. I just need to be able to transfer the speed to heavier weight.
Lesson learned this week. Sometimes it’s ok to show a little crazy and have a come-apart.
