Lisa Guggisberg- Week 5 MEAT PREP-Bench and Deadlift Work

I am getting ready for the RPS meet on October 3, 2015 in Fort Myers.  I decided I am not going to cut weight for this meet and go in the 123lb weight class.  I am saving the weight cut for the XPC Finals at the Arnold in March 2016.  The meet in October is going to be a test meet to see where I stand before the Arnold and make any adjustments in my programming that need to be made. 

Had a great bench session this week.  Everything felt light and speed is starting to come with heavier weights.  I feel much more comfortable with new set up and finally able to really drive back into my traps and hold a good, tight, arch.
