20 Pull Ups
15 Strict Hand Stand Push Ups
20 Pull Ups
15 Parallette Hand Stand Pushups
20 Pull Ups

If you’re wanting to build up a physique and capabilities like Lauren Fisher, you need to really be building both physical and mental toughness. The focus of training should start with building up strength. You’re probably going to need a trainer at first, but you should be focusing on the 3 main lifts. Or compound exercises.
These are movements that all CrossFitters build up and practice and practice to get to a high standard. Even Lauren Fisher. The squat for example, is a movement which increases a level of central nervous activity, coordination and balance unlike any other movement.
Lauren has said that to be successful in CrossFit you need to build up a CrossFit crew. She attributes her toughness and success in the sport to her three older brothers who caused her to be competitive and fight back.
Take time with key lifts, Lauren recommends filming yourself performing important movements and watching it back. Whilst this isn’t the exact same as having a top level trainer, you can learn and improve much quicker than guessing.
Lauren Fisher Diet
Lauren understanding of nutrition and what works is something that is always developing. She, like most athletes and unlike Rich Froning, does try and eat as healthy as possible. Ensuring she fuels her body with what’s going to work best for performance.
During a period when she injured her ankle, Lauren began to focus on foods that serve as an anti inflammatory and tried to cut out as many sugars as possible from her diet. Foods that help inflammation include fatty fish, nuts and green leafy vegetables.
Lauren originally ate with a Paleo diet in mind, but has since developed a more tailored approach to her diet and nutrition which does include more carbs and less fat. Lauren has stated that she follows a diet that is based around her macronutrient needs. Her split at the start of 2017 was 155g protein, 280g carbohydrates, 76g fats.
Lauren breaks her daily eating up into 3 meals and 3 snacks. This is on days when she splits her training into the AM and PM sessions.
