Miranda Cohen splits her workouts into upper and lower body routines, so we are going to take a look at each.


As with following anyone’s workout routine, you do not want to be cold going into the lifting, you need to warm up. That being said, before each of the days of Miranda Cohen’s workout, begin with 5-10 minutes of light cardio such as jogging, jumping jacks, or cycling to increase heart rate and warm up muscles.

Miranda also is someone who starts with dynamic stretches focusing on major muscle groups like leg swings, arm circles, and torso twists to improve flexibility and mobility, especially on those leg days.

Upper Body

Exercise Sets  Reps
Dumbbell Shoulder Press 3 10
Pendlay Row 3 8/6/failure
Chest Supported Lat Pulldown 3 8/6/failure
Cable Lateral Raise 3 6-8
Dumbbell Bicep Curl 3 8-10
Dumbbell Tricep Extension 3 10

As you can see, with Miranda Cohen’s upper body workout, she does a good amount of volume, even taking her sets to muscular failure. She also leaves out chest movements, but includes exercises for the back, shoulders, and the deltoids. Now let’s take a look at her lower body day.

Lower Body 

Exercise Sets Reps
Single Leg Dumbbell RDL 4 8 per leg
Dumbbell Step Ups 4 8 per leg
Leg Extensions 3
Adductor Machine 3 8
Seated Calf Raise 6 8

Now as you can see with Miranda Cohen’s lower body workout, she does not do a major amount of compound exercises, making sure to isolate each muscle. She also has a larger focus on the hamstrings and glutes, rather than the quads. That being said, if you are someone looking to train for powerlifting or bodybuilding, you may want to use a bit of a different leg workout.

Rest and Recovery

Allow at least one day of rest between strength training sessions to allow muscles to recover and grow. If you hit upper body on a Monday, you do not want to hit it again on Tuesday. 

You also want to ensure proper nutrition and hydration to support muscle recovery and overall health. Remember to listen to your body and adjust the intensity and frequency of workouts as needed. Consistency is key to seeing progress in your fitness journey.

More About Miranda Cohen

As stated above, Miranda Cohen has her own company, where she trains clients to be the best versions of themselves. Miranda is a natural fighter who has gone through some challenges from the very beginning, as she was born with a hole in her heart, a condition known as Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD). Miranda was encouraged by her mother to live a healthy lifestyle to combat her medical circumstances (the possibility of open heart surgery) that were always looming over her future. 

Despite the limitations of her condition, Miranda persevered, not letting it define her and finding things that she loved to do, and pursuing them. Miranda had her first job at 12 years old, caddying on routine golf outings. The people she caddied for were successful business men and women, and each time she picked up pieces of life advice, knowledge and experience that helped guide her. 

From there Miranda picked up dance and mastered ballet, hip-hop, jazz, tap, and lyrical routine, dedicating herself fully to these different interests. She eventually joined Western Michigan University’s dance team, and found someone who shared a mindset similar to hers and mentored her, teaching her that self doubt and criticism is for the faint of heart and only stiffles personal growth. Miranda began to train her body and find every possible way to be her best self.

Miranda was working with her mother one summer when her mother told her that she needed to start her own business, and she was right. When Miranda returned to college that next semester, she combined her passion and the potential for training and with her friend and mentor, Lucas, Miranda Dream Fit was born. 

Since then, Miranda has become a guiding force in the fitness industry, allowing for people to follow her workouts and take her advice.
