Lift Like Laura – August 2021

(2 customer reviews)


A series of programs with a mix of bodyweight training, lifting, gymnastics style conditioning, & so much more!

This month has more of a strength/power focus – so higher weight, lower reps for some of the heavier exercises.

What are the Lift Like Laura (LLL) Programs?

The Lift Like Laura programs are based on programs that I have made for myself. They are advanced, 4- or 6-week programs that include changes in reps, tempo, or progressions in the exercise throughout the month to ensure progression. Each program typically has a different focus (e.g. strength, skill, power, hypertrophy, endurance, etc.).  There are multiple LLL programs and they do not necessarily have to be done in a particular order.

How long does this program take?

This program will take about 1-1.5 hours per day and is designed for 5 days per week. There will be two lower body focused days, two upper body focused days, and one full body day. Each day has a core burner at the end of each workout. It is designed to be a 4 week program with a combination of self progressions and program progressions made from week to week (weights, reps, tempo, exercise progressions, etc).

Is this program right for me?

This is an advanced program, so experience with lifting and basic movement patterns (push, pull, squat, lunge, carry) is required. A typical workout involves a warm up, 12 exercise workout, 3 exercise core burner, and a cool down. To reduce the risk of overuse injuries you should be already able to tolerate working out at a similar volume. This program also includes a little handstand work here and there, so you should be able to hold a wall handstand for at least 20 seconds.

What equipment do I need?

Access to a full gym will likely be needed, as the following equipment is required:
– Barbell + plates
– Big looped bands
– Dumbbells or kettlebells
– TRX or rings (but can sub a bench/bands depending on the exercise)
– Bench
– Pull up bar
– Parallel bars or pull up bar where you can do dips
– Stability ball or physioball
– Ankle weights or knee extension machine (you can substitute bands or a dumbbell depending on your set up)

How do I know if I’m doing the exercises correctly?

In addition to the written program, each day includes a video playlist for each individual exercise for the warm up, cool down, and workout. Each video goes over proper form, common errors, and corrections for these common errors so you can ensure proper form during the program!

Can I do this with other programs?

This program is designed to be performed on its own as it is a full body program that has a fairly high volume. It is not designed to be performed with any other program. If you would like to add a little bit of lighter cardio in there (jogging, light biking, etc.), I would keep it at a max of 20-30 minutes, 3-4 days per week and only if you are already used to doing that volume. Please feel free to go on walks as often as you’d like! If you have any questions on this, please feel free to shoot me an email at

What kind of support do I get?

Feel free to reach out via email if you have any questions throughout the program.  You also get access to the Facebook community page to work through the program with others, share wins, ask questions, etc!  If you’d like, you can even post videos in the Facebook group of exercises that are in your program to get feedback on form!

How much is it?

$25 USD. I wanted to make an accessible program for those who are unable to do my individualized workout programs or consult calls for whatever reason!

What if I don’t like the program?

As you receive the program once you purchase it, no refunds will be given. If you have any questions about if the program is right for you, please email with any questions you have!

    Lift Like Laura – August 2021 is a program that I enjoyed due to the incorporation of lateral movements along with other athletic skills -which for a 58-year-old ex-bodybuilder represented quite a challenge-. However, as Laura frequently says, something is better than nothing and modifications are welcome. Armed with this caveat I threw myself into it and despite my experience as a personal trainer and competitor I learned a lot about myself. The program made me aware of aspects of my training that at my age I have to pay more attention to. After each session muscle fibers would send me messages that clearly said “Why did it take you so long to visit us?” I’m planning on revisiting the program with the purpose of inducing some hypertrophy by means of other techniques, such as time under tension, pyramid loads and rep ranges of 10-12. The program proved to be a good investment.
