*SHOW TIMESTAMPS FEATURED AT THE END*

In this episode, Cal Football Sports Performance Coach Brian Johnson comes on the show to give his take on building size and adding weight to an athlete without adversely impacting their speed and power output.

To start, Brian talks a bit about the process of starting at a new school or with a new organization and the challenges that can come with that. He also touches on his development as a coach and how his own college and pro playing career shaped him as a coach.

From there, Brian talks a bit about adapting as a coach when things change and then the conversation turns to adding weight to an athlete's frame while also keeping their speed and power output in mind.

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