Episode 99: Upper Body Training – Goldy Simmons

The ALL ME® Podcast

Upper Body Training – Goldy Simmons

Here at the Taylor Hooton Foundation, one of our tremendous partners is the Professional Baseball Strength and Conditioning Coaches Society (PBSCCS for short). PBSCCS is our partner behind our MLB ALL ME Advisory Board. Together we inspire people to achieve their physical goals the right way. Because of that, we wanted to team up and bring you a series of podcast episodes focusing on a variety of performance topics. In this episode, we talk with Goldy Simmons, the Director of Strength and Conditioning for the Chicago White Sox. Goldy will give us his background within the worlds of baseball and strength and conditioning, while also taking about his topic-upper body training. 


We talk to Goldy about why he wanted to discuss upper body training, what muscle group this entails, the skills that can be improved through upper body training, and how often you should focus on this area. We talk about why he views sleep as so crucial to your training, exercises you can do at home for your own upper body training, and his thoughts about those that may be tempted by PEDs to achieve their goals. Goldy shares his knowledge and philosophy for performance and beyond, and we thank him for his time. Thanks to PBSCCS as well for their support and inspiration for others to be #ALLMEPEDFREE!
