Why More Athletes Like Logan Salow Use Red Light

Being an athlete can be physically demanding. Many of us love watching athletes perform at their best as we cheer them on their field of choice. As spectators, we support them with our cheers and admiration. But how do athletes like Logan Salow support their body to keep up with the physical demands of professional baseball?

The team at Solas reached out to Salow to see if he would be interested in giving his body a healing advantage over other athletes on the field. Logan Solow kindly responded with an excited “yes” to try our Solas Mini to help him recover off the field.

In this article, we asked Logan some personal questions, and he was kind enough to let us know some of his personal story and why he chose to use red light therapy from Solas.

Solas Interview with Logan Salow of the Los Angeles Dodgers

Solas

Tell us a little bit about yourself and your career.

Salow

I am a LHP in the LA Dodgers organization. I’m currently in AAA Oklahoma City in pursuit of the big leagues. I played 4 years at the University of Kentucky. I was drafted in the 6th Round in 2017 by the Oakland A’s then traded to LA in 2018. In the off-season I live in Kentucky with my wife, Sydney, who works in our hometown as a dentist.

Solas

Any specific goals for yourself and your career?

Salow

Some goals I have for myself is to break in to the big leagues and establish myself as a steady reliever in the MLB. I plan on having a long career and making an all star appearance or two. I want earn the right to be a pitcher that chooses his own path throughout their career.

Solas

Have you always had a strong athletic background?

Salow

I played 3 sports in high school and still enjoy playing basketball and football in my free time. The lessons and abilities I learned by playing other sports have really helped me develop as a pitcher.

Solas

Do you feel that adding better recovery could help enhance any MLB player?

Salow

Better recovery is essential in our sport. The season is a grind and those who are able to stay on the field have more opportunities to show what they’re capable of. You see it every day in our sport, guys go down and it’s next man up. Better recovery can improve your chances of being on the right side of that scenario.

Solas

How much post training time do you dedicate to the recovery? What are some of your the tools you use for recovery?

Salow

Every time I throw I make sure to take care of my arm and body post training. Most of the time it involves shoulder stability work as well as core stability. I use resistance bands and weights for the stability exercises as well as BFR (Blood Flow Restriction) and Marc Pro for enhanced muscle recovery.

Solas

How much priority does recovery take in your training?

Salow

As a reliever, you have to be prepared to throw every day. There are plenty of times you have to throw multiple days in a row so post training or post outing recovery is very important. Taking care of my body is of upmost importance so I make sure I’m checking every box when it comes to being ready to perform the next day.

Solas

What got you excited aboutSolas and red light therapy?

Salow

Solas is really interesting to me. I was introduced to red light therapy some time ago while I was getting some treatment in the off-season. I have tried it before and felt like it definitely helped recovery, but never had much access to it. With Solas, I can have my own personal units and am excited to see how much better my recovery can get with consistent use of red light therapy.

Solas

What part of your personal training routine is the toughest to get through, but left you having a harder time receiving from?

Salow

As mentioned before, the season is a grind, so the toughest part of my routine is managing the days where I throw multiple days in a row. The stress on your body after multiple days work is high so it makes recovery more difficult. In order to bounce back and be able to perform at a high level you have to be diligent in your recovery.

Solas

Have you noticed any benefits since you started using your Solas light?

Salow

I’ve used Solas for the last week and I have started to notice a difference in how I’ve been able to bounce back after a tough workout.

Solas

Would you recommend Solas to other athletes who are looking to enhance their recovery game?

Salow

Any athlete that wants to maximize their performance should use every resource available to them, and Solas has so many products that can take you to another level in terms of recovery.
