Lori stressed intensity and strict exercise form over poundages. She performed 10-15 sets per body part with an average of 15 reps per set. Her diet was restricted to about 800 calories per day and dropped to 500 per day the last three weeks before the show.

Here is a sample of the exercises she did to improve her lower back: 

5 sets Hyperextensions (15 reps)

5 sets Good Mornings with barbell (12-15 reps)

5 sets Stiff-Legged Deadlifts (12-15 reps)
