  • The constant evolutionary mission of J.L.’s life and how he is leveraging this today to help others
  • How selfishness led J.L. down the entrepreneurial path and the opening of his own gym
  • “If we don’t know and own our story, our coaching will be dictated by a story we don’t understand”
  • What will happen if you do not follow the order of operations when training athletes of all levels
  • The madness created by researchers coming to conclusions on powerlifting with 2/3 of the information
