*SHOW TIMESTAMPS FEATURED AT THE END*

On this episode Gerry welcomes pitcher AND pitching strength coach Dean Jackson to the show!

Dean has a very interesting background as he is still pursuing his own playing dreams of professional baseball as a pitcher while also doing some excellent work as a coach for various amateur and pro arms alike.  Dean blends a terrific understanding of pitching and pitching mechanics along with a great grasp for strength and conditioning concepts which truly makes this a unique listen for pitchers, pitching coaches AND strength coaches.

After divulging a bit about his own background growing up and how that impacted him in terms of his knowledge in training, Dean gets into tips and advice for not only youth pitchers and athletes, but then discusses the specificities of strength training for advanced pitchers. This includes some of the characteristics he looks for when it comes to the movements specific to pitching and how that can shape subsequent strength training.

From there, the conversation turns to specificity and Gerry and Dean give their takes on what training transferability really means and how we can make sure we are giving our athletes what they need to succeed as pitchers and athletes.

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