In this episode, Gerry welcomes on Furman University Strength and Conditioning Coach, Matt Aldred.
To begin, Matt and Gerry discuss fundamental and principle driven ways to bridge the gap between sport and the weight room and how you can still hit the basics while doing so.
Then, the two discuss building solid relationships between strength and sport coaches and how that inevitably will help the athlete. Then, the conversation finishes up with a discussion about weight room culture and building a solid community with your athletes.
