Some Info about LAURA:

 

I was born in Cincinnati, Ohio on July 24, 1980. Currently, I am a fitness specialist at General Motors Corporation in Toledo, Ohio.

 

Before bodybuilding, I was active in many sports. Growing up, and through high school, I played soccer, ran track, was on the dance team, and competed in gymnastics. After High School, I started running long distance, and eventually completed the Columbus Marathon and the Glass City Marathon, along with several mini-marathons. When I started my job at General Motors two years ago, I decided to take advantage of our facility, and began weight training. I knew nothing about bodybuilding until I met my boyfriend, who has since been training me for competitions.

 

Initially, I just enjoyed the training. But, after three months of training, I decided to do a small competition in Columbus, Ohio for the NANBF. I won the lightweight class and the overall in that show. I had so much fun being on stage, I knew I was hooked! My next competition would be the GNC BodyRock, where I took my class and the overall win. That was an amazing show with amazing competitors, with whom I made friends and have immense respect for.

 

A typical day for me allows for only a few things. I wake up, eat, train, eat, work, eat some more, then sleep. I wish there were more hours in the day!! I typically train 4-5 days per week. I have also begun competing in Powerlifting, so my training varies between a bodybuilding style and powerlifting.

 

In the offseason, I train as heavy as I can. Some of my heavier lifts include:
For Bench press :  200 x 8
    Deadlift:  335 x 8  and  405 max
    Dumbbell Shoulder Press:  70 each x 12

Leg Press – 850 x 12
Barbell Curls – 80 x 10
Tricep Pushdowns – 170 x 10

 

My favorite exercises in the gym are deadlifts and dumbbell shoulder press. I love these exercises because of the intensity they bring out in me. It’s also fun to freak people out with the dumbbells I use for the shoulder presses!

 

From my background in sports, I always had thick, developed legs, but a smaller upper body. So my main focus, lately, has been adding size to my arms and chest, plus thickness in my back. Some off-season measurements are: 
Arms – 14”
Quads – 25”
Calves – 16”

 

As for judging in women’s bodybuilding, I have not formed any kind of opinion about it, either way. I try not to spend too much time thinking about it. I put all my energy into my training and developing the body I want, and believe that, if it’s meant to be they will like it! My only focus is to bring the best package I possibly can to the stage.

 

Right now I am training for, and plan to compete in the 2005 Junior Nationals. I hope to get a powerlifting meet or two in, between now and then, also!

 

Please note:

Laura does not do sessions or wrestling of any kind. Please don't ask!!
