GGS Spotlight: Laura Franklin






Name: Laura Franklin

Age: 30

Location: Davidson, NC
What does being a Girl Gone Strong mean to you"

It?s about finding and embracing your power in whatever form it comes. It is about owning your space and being comfortable in your skin. It?s having the courage to take on new challenges and get outside of your own box. It is nothing more and nothing less than fully embracing yourself and your potential.
How long have you been strength training, and how did you get started"

I?ve always enjoyed the notion of being ?strong?. I worked with a catering company from the time I was 14 until well into my mid-20s and I loved being able to pick up the heavy stuff without assistance. We had some basic exercise and strength training equipment at my house growing up, I occasionally frequented a gym in high school and college, I did lots of at-home workout programs. But I didn?t find my groove with strength training until after my daughter was born. I found myself in a CrossFit style gym in early 2015 and signed up for their intro course. Why not, right" Had to get that pre-baby bod back after all? (I was serious about this then, I?m sarcastic about it now.)
I loved it, but what I loved most were the strength components ? not so much the mayhem of the day?s WOD and sprinting all over the place. It was fun, but only fun in a group. However, me and the barbell" Yes, please!
What does your typical workout look like"

Whatever my SYC coach, Jen Comas, has programmed for me that day! Ha!
I like some variety and, like everyone, I have my favorite exercises. It usually goes something like this:

Brief warm up (really brief if I?m in a hurry)
A few sets of a bigger lift or two (deadlift, squats, bench press)
Lighter or bodyweight sets with more variety (push ups, pull ups, core work)
Cooldown (yoga and stretching)

The days vary too, so one day would be more upper body focused, then lower body, and then total. SYC programming covers it all!
Favorite lift:

Oooh, that?s a close tie between deadlift and bench press! I feel like a badass deadlifting and once I started pulling numbers over 200, my personal badassery increased even more. When I started lifting in 2015, my three-rep max was only 160 pounds so hooray for improvements!
The bench press and I have a more tumultuous relationship. I love the way that lift feels, but it?s one of my weakest ones, so every time the weight increases just a little bit I do a happy dance. Breaking three digits was an awesome accomplishment and yet there are still days I can?t quite do it.
Most memorable PR:

Breaking 200 pounds on my deadlift. It had been a goal for me since my first deadlift. I just wanted to crack 200 pounds and I pulled over 215! Utter badassery.
Do you prefer to train alone or with others" Why"

Alone. Having a spotter from time to time would be nice but generally I just want to turn up the music and go. I don?t get much time to myself each day but my gym time is mine.
Must ha...
