*SHOW TIMESTAMPS FEATURED AT THE END*

In this episode, Gerry holds and epic Q&A geared towards answering some of your most asked questions regarding important topics in the world of strength and conditioning.

To start, he touches on an extremely important topic in athletic development: fat loss and whether or not "six pack," abs are necessary to perform at a high level. He also goes over how much fat you may have to gain to put on needed muscle, and how you can tell whether or not you are gaining "good," fat.

From there, the Q&A touches a wide variety of topics across sports performance such as where to turn when trying to get faster and already fairly strong, energy systems and conditioning specific to baseball and how often you may want to program speed days.

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