*SHOW TIMESTAMPS FEATURED AT THE END*

In this episode Gerry welcomes on veteran strength and sports performance coach Adam Menner to talk all things athletes and improving athletic performance.

Adam is a New York based coach who has worked with over 50 college athletes over the last several years, with a specialty in basketball.

The conversation looks at linear speed and how we develop speed. Adam and Gerry discuss the importance of sprinting in coordination with a good strength training program and some things to look for mechanically.

Additionally, the two discuss agility. How we must get athletes more adept at “problem solving,” to be better prepared for the field of play and how to bridge the gap between activity in a structured setting versus activity that is random and chaotic.
