*SHOW TIMESTAMPS FEATURED AT THE END*

In this episode Gerry welcomes on Exsurgo (strength training and sports performance technology company) CEO Greg Lutton to discuss all things training, measuring metrics in training and the impact that can have on sports performance and maximizing athlete potential.

To start, Gerry has Greg bring us through his background. From his own career in sports, to attending Harvard and even designing video games, Greg explores his background and how the combination of sports, strength and conditioning and tech (video games) impacted his venture into strength training technology/devices.

From there, Greg talks about Exsurgo, and how he and Max Schmarzo (Strong By Science) first came together to create easy to use, affordable and effective technology to measure the vertical jump. The conversation then turns to the future of Exsurgo and their goals for training technology and the implications training tech can have on measuring athlete readiness, injury reduction and more.
