Austin O'Neal & Megan Benzik (OPEX Athlete)
5 days ago
Austin and Megan have both spent significant amounts of time at South Loop Strength & Conditioning as both athletes and coaches, and - last year after competing at the Central Regional - they've moved out to Scottsdale, Arizona to be part of OPEX's sponsored athlete program. The goal of this program is to allow athletes to train full-time - and not have to worry about coaching classes, working a day job, or running from gym to gym throughout the day. Getting better in training is all about maximizing your ability to respond and adapt to stressors - which means minimizing the stress in your life outside of the gym. Check this episode out to learn how Megan and Austin have learned to trust the coaching process (and avoid self-doubt and constant questioning of what they're doing), what they do to prioritize their recovery outside of the gym, and how they approach the mental grind of training on a daily basis.
