Lisa Guggisberg- WEEK 2 MEAT PREP RPS US OPEN-Squats & Deadlifts

I am currently getting ready for the RPS US Open in San Diego, CA where I will be competing at 114lbs raw in wraps.  I am about 4 weeks out.



Saturday Squats and deads

Warm up

McGill Big 3

Goblet squats

Squat Work

Bar 2 x10

135 x 5

185 x 3

225 x 2

275 x 1

325 2×2 (85%)

Paused Squats: 5×3 at 225

Accessory Work:

Bulgarian split squats 3 x15

Stir the pot x 200

Made some minor tweaks with head position on squats.  I was driving my head too far back and up causing a curve in my cervical spine which caused a bad pull down the entire posterior chain.  Put my head in a more neutral position and felt much better.

Deadlift Work


135 x 5

185 x 3

225 x 3

275 x 2

300 2×2

Surprised at how easy the 300# felt.  Brian decided to have me pull sumo for the next couple of weeks. I am a conventional puller so 300# was a sumo PR for me.

Deficit Deads (Conventional stance off 2 inch blocks)

265# 3×5.

These felt great.  Fast and lots of leg drive.

Deload this week.  I focus on hip mobility and working on my IT bands as they are pretty angry at me.
