My guest today is former professional baseball player and Dr. of Physical of Therapy Ismael Gallo. We’re going to discuss how to maximize baseball specific movements through a “problem solving” system of exercises created by Dr. Gallo himself. This one’s a real eye opener and something that can be done at home without any equipment. The whole podcast is a great discussion on the body as it relates to ball players.
Dr. Gallo’s background is unorthodox to say the least, which is what makes him so interesting. After dropping out of high school at 17, he worked his way into a starting shortstop position at Mt. San Antonio Junior College. From there, he was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 20th round of the 1996 draft. He played 5 minor league seasons finishing his career with a .300 batting average.
After his professional baseball career concluded, Dr. Gallo received a bachelor’s in Kinesiology from California State University, Fullerton. Thereafter, he enrolled in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at Loma Linda University where he graduated with his doctorate degree. In 2010, after graduation he started his business, Baseball Flows, bringing his baseball background together with his studies.
