Podcast #39: The 5 Tool Connection with Performance Coach Brandon Golden

My guest today is Brandon Golden, former collegiate and MLB Performance Coach, currently with 5 Tool Connection a performance science company. I met Brandon recently at the Wake Forest Bridge seminar and walked away very impressed with his unique approach. We will be discussing much of what he takes his athletes through in preparation for a long season of baseball. Topics include:

    • Different athletes training windows
    • Velocity-Based Training (VBT)
    • Assessing mobility on Day 1

Brandon began his career as a volunteer Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach with High Point, Mississippi State and Wake Forest from 2012 -2014. He joined USA Baseball as a Strength and Conditioning Coach in 2015 and was later with Charleston Southern, and East Carolina, before joining the LA Dodgers from 2020 – 2022 as a Performance Coach.

Brandon has a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from East Carolina University and a Master’s from St. John’s in Sports Management. He can be reached on his Twitter account @coachBGolden.
