Gerry DeFilippo

In this episode, Gerry welcomes Jason Spray back on the show. Jason is a veteran strength coach who has spent over a decade at the Division I level and has trained multiple NFL pro bowlers such as Tennessee Titan's All-Pros Kevin Byard and Derrick Henry.

To start, Jason dives into the topic of soft tissue injuries during return to play after long lay-offs and how coaches will have to navigate this as athletes return to gameplay after a long lay-off from COVID-19.

From there, Gerry and Jason discuss gimmicks in training, how to program plyometrics (extensive vs. intensive), how to effectively train energy systems and conditioning for sports and why it might not be a good idea for strength coaches to try and directly bring sports into the weight room.

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