On this weeks episode of Mental Monday, Ben Askren addresses the idea that while hard work is a key for improving as a wrestler, if an athlete fails to evolve in other aspects of the sport then hard work will not be enough to keep them from losing matches. Askren acknowledges that wrestling is a sport that arguably requires more hard work than any other, but if an athlete wants to become great and not stay at just good, then they need to find a way to evolve their technique to a higher level than their opponent who may be working just as hard.
