    Episode #197 Prioritizing Speed Training, Upper Body Training for Throwers and Improving Specific Aspects of Your Sprint

    In this episode, Gerry is back to answer your questions and discuss a litany of topics in strength and conditioning.

    From there, the conversation turns to various topics like prioritizing speed training in strength and conditioning programs and where many schools and organizations are missing the mark when it comes to this.

    Then, things finish up with a conversation on training for throwers and why you might not be seeing improvement in your 40-yard dash. All that and more on this episode of Muscles and Management!
