*SHOW TIMESTAMPS FEATURED AT THE END*

In this episode Gerry welcomes former Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs Athletic Trainer Aaron Borgmann.

To start, Aaron walks through his core philosophies as an athletic trainer and rehabilitation professional, based around his mantra, "train the athlete, not the condition." Aaron talks about the importance of accounting for the variables that can arise from one athlete to another and ultimately affect the nature, seriousness and rehab timeline of injuries.

From there, Gerry asks Aaron his opinion on unstable surface training and voices his displeasures with the use of it in the realm of strength and conditioning. Aaron and Gerry both agree on the need for stability variations in physical therapy and rehabbing injuries that diminish proprioception. However, there are much simpler and effective variations that would work instead of using complicated variations to look novel or "cool."

To finish the conversation, the two address the importance of the meaning of injury "prevention," and "reduction." Meaning, there is no such thing as preventing injuries as that would imply we could predict them, but rather our goal should be focused on injury REDUCTION.

All that and more on this episode of Muscles and Management!
