Our 2015 ASAP Strength Tour led us once again to America's Deep South. It's a far cry from Vermont or even somewhere like Cincinnati. And, it's downright hot and humid down there! But that doesn't seem to phase the Mississippi State Bulldogs at all. In fact, they seem to thrive in it. One thing is for certain, their opponents better be training for those types of conditions if they're planning a trip to Starkville.

Anyway, we caught up with Head Strength & Conditioning Coach Rick Court, the guy who masterminds the training regimen for the 'Dawgs. Coach donned a long sleeved white Adidas climate control shirt underneath his official Mississippi State Bulldogs Football shirt. He comes out of the gates at full speed and doesn't stop to catch his breath until a group workout ends. Then, he recharges and is ready to go for the next group. He flat out loves the strength coaching profession. We have known about him since his G.A. days at Bowling Green, then Toledo and San Diego State. Ohio State..... and now he's settled in at Mississippi State. Coach Court has a full grasp of how to prepare college football players and is always willing to share his knowledge of training with other coaches and those involved with college athletics.
In our ASAP Podcast, Coach Court tells us what the Bulldogs have been up to, information about today's workout session and how they are prepping for the 2015 campaign.
