Use a Balanced Approach and Smart Training to Unleash The Beast This Season!
How many times have you looked at an opponent and said “man, that guy is huge for his weight class!”, or how many times have you seen a tight match between two wrestlers of equal skill come down to the stronger, more conditioned wrestler? I can think of NO other sport where a proper strength training regimen will have a more significant impact on your performance than wrestling. So I am making a “call to arms” for all of you wrestlers out there, to focus on getting strong as a bull this summer and fall, and prepare yourself for the best season of your life.
Listen, I understand all too well that living in the weight room may make you look pretty buff, but if you don’t spend anytime actually wrestling and perfecting your craft, you will not taste victory as often as you should! On the flip side, if you live in the wrestling room but haven’t touched iron all summer, you will likely feel like you are wrestling a rooted tree during every match this winter. So where does this leave us? It’s all about balance my friend! Why not adapt to one of the following schedules this off season, and wrestle your best this upcoming season!
Both of these options will have you bigger, stronger, and more athletic than you have ever been, all while allowing you to maintain your wrestling conditioning, and pick up a few new moves along the way.
The key to your gains this off season will be patience! There are no short cuts, but if you strength train using 2-3x full body workouts/week with CONSISTENCY, you WILL get bigger and stronger, provided you work as hard you can, and implement proper technique in each training session. We believe in using progressive overload over time to gain muscular strength, size, and power. Progressive overload simply means adding 5-10 lbs on an exercise each training session, which leads to a great improvement over time.
Patience and Focus: Always the main ingredients in the recipe for SUCCESS!
For example, if you squat 135x20 reps right now, do you think that if you could squat 225x20, your legs would be bigger and stronger? They absolutely would be, and I can promise you getting out of that bottom position would be far easier too! Slow, steady gains over time ALWAYS yield great results, but only YOU can put that work in, and give it a 100% effort to be a champion.
What are you waiting for?
It is only May right now; we have a solid 6 months before the start of the next scholastic season. Our exercise selections are specific to the demands of the sport of wrestling, and will have you in full “beast mode” for the start of next season. It's easy to sit on the couch playing PS3, but you won't win many matches that way. Sure, you will be able to defeat some guys, but when it's crunch time in the 3rd period of a huge match, and the tank is on empty, you will wish you had worked harder in the off season. Don’t wait another second, contact us today to start your quest to get stronger, more explosive, and improve your chances of becoming a champion!
When its the third period, do you want your tank on empty?
This is a call to arms for next season…will you be ready?
