Gerry DeFilippo

In this episode Gerry sits down with Chad Martin and Drew Watts of Pitching Performance Lab in Lexington Kentucky.

To start, Gerry has Chad and Drew discuss their respective experiences and how they have led them to the work they do today. Chad discusses his baseball career and time as a pitcher at Indiana University and with the Chicago Cubs, while Drew tells the stories of his college sport career that led to his passions of strength and conditioning.

From there, the two discuss how they collaborate in their efforts to build better pitchers and how Chad relies on Drew to enhance what he can do with the specifics of pitching, and how Drew can improve the work he does with pitchers and build more effective programming with knowledge he gleams from Chad.

The conversation then turns to the fallacies regarding pitchers and not lifting weights, the battle of energy systems and conditioning with sport coaches and pitchers specifically and MUCH more.

Tune in for a well rounded discussion on how sport and strength coaches can best collaborate to the benefit of the athlete.
