Earlier we reviewed the workout programs of the American League participants in this year’s Home Run Derby. The National League sluggers – Matt Holliday, Corey Hart, Hanley Ramirez, and Chris Young, have plenty of workout advice of their own. Each of the hitters has dedicated himself to being in peak physical condition for the season and the results are certainly paying off on the field.
Matt Holliday is possibly one of the biggest workout fanatics in Major League Baseball. He was recently featured on the cover of Muscle and Fitness Magazine and is truly dedicated to his physical conditioning and nutrition. He’s a big fan of the TRX and has been known to fly in his trainer and stretching specialist during the season.
Holliday is on a recent hot streak and hit his 16th home run of the season on Sunday. He will be competing in his 2nd Home Run Derby.
