Building the Strongest Women on Earth: Laura Phelps-Stackhouse
Today I chat with Laura Phelps Stackhouse. Laura is the strongest female powerlifter in history, currently holding 8 All-Time World Records. She is a personal trainer and the founder of Queen Bee Power, which is aimed at training others in the Conjugate Method she learned from Louis Simmons.
