Today we have Ben’s best friend, Andy O’Brien, the strength and conditioning coach for the Pittsburg Penguins! Ben and Andy dive deep into optimizing performance no matter what your athletic endeavor is. We discuss the role of the CNS in athletic performance and how to determine your optimal state for performance. We also dive into exercise and drill selection to train for speed, power and movement, the correlation between strength and performance and how to optimize recovery when there are variables that are out of your control.
