Carry it every moment of every day.

All-American badass Justin Lascek joins Power Athlete Radio to share his aim to spread the lessons learned in his journey to empower all of you. Lascek is a combat wounded Green Beret who stepped on an IED while conducting combat operations in Afghanistan. He lost both legs below the knee as well as his testicles and potential fatherhood. His near-death experience, emotional health history, trauma accumulation, and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) exposure led him to foster a new emotional health paradigm predicated on mindfulness. Before enlisting Justin gained momentum helping lifters make gains through cult education phenomenon, 70’s Big.

Strap yourself in for an empowering conversation this Independence Day! Justin Lascek and Welbourn reconnect from the early days of 70’s Big and The Crew explores mindset, adversity, and how to turn a trauma into a growth experience.
