There is nothing traditional about Jim Laird.
This week we welcome the owner of GYM Laird Strength and Conditioning and once roommate of Jim Wendler. The former Powerlifter turned industry leader has some unconventional opinions about, well just about everything.
After some discussion on Jim's background, we get down and dirty with his fascinations with optimal posture, high vs. low threshold environments, and the power of meditation. Learn how his life took some interesting turns and conscious reprioritizing after struggling with a major health setback. His brutally honest take on the experience and it's possible link to a lifestyle of poor eating, excessive training, and steroid use is sobering to say the least.
Next, we chat about his typical client. Working with nearly 90% females, Jim has developed a unique finesse to converting your average cardio fiend or triathlete into a competitive Powerlifter. How does he do it? The secrets lie just moments away.
Jim Laird is not your average coach. Our candid conversation revealed his unique approach to athlete assessments, vision for the future of our industry, and insight to what really matters in training and in life.

And because it's topical, I leave you with this quote from General George S. Patton
"It’s the unconquerable soul of man, not the nature of the weapon he uses, that insures victory."
