On this episode of 2 White Lights, we cover the weekend of IPF World Championships and the debate on whether or not the USAPL should break away from IPF (0-14:28). 2 White Lights is joined by Eric Stone (@2xl_powerlifitng) who is the Illinois State Chairman for APF, part of the APF Executive Committee, and part owner of 2XL Powerlifting in Lombard, IL. We Discuss Eric’s years as an equipped powerlifter, how he became affiliated with APF/directing meets, his philosophies on running meets, our 2 White Lights Topic of the Week- “What are you doing as meet director to put on the ‘perfect’ meet for your competitors”, and the most annoying question he’s been asked at meets (14:34-58:13). We also discuss with Eric what gets him excited to coach a powerlifter, his legacy in the sport of powerlifting, and some of his future plans with meets at the Chicago Strength Expo October 26-28 (58:19-79:19). Lastly, the Cohost Formerly Known as Enzo goes live on IG to answer some questions.
