Bikini competitor Lauralie Chapados is committed to improving her physique each and every year she competes as an IFBB Pro. In a recent Instagram video, Chapados demonstrated a series of brutal leg workouts under the guidance of bodybuilding coach Charles Glass.
Chapados has proven to be one of the most consistent and dominant Bikini competitors in the world. She earned her Pro card in 2016 at the IFBB World Qualifier, winning Overall and Bikini, in first place. Aside from 2017, she has qualified and competed at Olympia the past four years.
Chapados’ name quickly grew in popularity following her 2018 season in the sport. She began the year by winning first in Bikini at the 2018 Toronto Pro Supershow and turned around a month later to take gold at the Wings of Strength Chicago Pro. Chapados’ success didn’t stop there, she also won the 2018 Tampa Pro. Capping off a historic year, Chapados placed second at 2018 Olympia and at the Shawn Rhoden Classic.
Returning in 2019, Chapados competed at four IFBB Pro League shows. Her best performances of the year came at the Arnold Classic Australia, where she secured runner-up before taking her physique to Olympia, placing fourth, respectively. After Olympia, she got back to her winning ways, securing the title at the 2019 Yamamoto Cup. Her next show would come at 2020 Olympia, an event that saw her reach fifth place. Making up for the time off, she competed at a handful of shows in 2021.
Chapados’ won four out of the seven IFBB Pro League shows she competed in last year (2021 Chicago Pro, Powerhouse Classic Pro, Sacramento Pro, and Iron Games Pro). She wrapped up last year at Olympia in second place, matching her 2018 performance. The Bikini standout’s season in 2022 hasn’t been much different. Thus far, she’s flawless at shows this year, having found gold at the 2022 Arnold Classic, Pittsburgh Pro, and the New York Pro. If she plans to rule the Bikini category like she has lately, training alongside a decorated bodybuilding coach like Glass definitely won’t hurt her chances.
