Wrestling Advice PLease

Postby Soccerdude99 » Fri Oct 02, 2009 12:52 pm

hey im extremely new to folkstyle wrestling. im a junior in highschool and am guna try out for the wreslting team this year. Ima be in the 125lbs ( Im 5'6) most probably. decided to give wrestling a try because some of the people i do bjj with were great college wrestlers and it helps alot with controlling ur opponent on the ground , and wrestling also helped them get into sum good colleges. Any advice for sumone who is completley new to wrestling( only half a year of bjj experience) I also started to hit the gym to pack on sum muscle in attempt to be in shape started to run 2 miles a day. Iv been working on muscle groups like quads and shoulders soposedly there good for wreslters. BUT anyway just lookn for sum advice so i know what im getting into so i dont get completly creamed wen i go for my first meet. Ur advice would be extremely appreciated. =)

if youve been doing BJJ for a while its gonna be weird for you not being able to fight off of your back. be sure to remember to belly down if you get taken down. also, CARDIO. cardio is gonna be one of your biggest enemies in wrestling. 2 miles a day is a good start, but youre gonna wanna get that up to 5 or 6. if you can run 5 miles and not be completely burnt youll be fine

work on your sprawls because in wrestling you can't pull guard lol

just work a lot on improving your sprawl, takedowns (singles, double leg, high crotch) and cardio is the one thing that will help you in wrestling.

hell no 2 the 5-6 mile runs no offense all good advice but u gotta run like ur in a wrestling match. think about it a wrestling match is more often than not a fast paced bout so u gotta run at a pace like a wrestling match a good way 2 do this i found was 2 get really good at running 1.5-2miles because then ur used 2 going all out 4 the run instead of a slow jog and even a fast 2miles will be around 14-15mins which is more than enough 2 get u thru a match

to each his own. i always used really long distances for my wrestling cardio. i always tended to grind my opponent down instead of being really explosive constantly.

ive trained all sorts of cardio for wrestling (i wrestled for 15 years) and the longer distance running always worked best for me

i some wat agree with u that u should do more sprints to simulate short bursts like in a match. but howver it is october and i know my season doesnt start until thanksgiving so long distance runs will better prepare your body for 3 hour practices. but a match, even if u do grind it out the full 6 u u arent doing things half speed. u still are ganna explode when u go for the takedown or scrabble back to ur feet. u should vary ur runs and do both. one thing ive always like doing is doing a jog for a period of time and sprinting for another. if u can get near a football field i like running around it (vertically) going down the side at a jog and sprinting accross (horizontally) it.

i wrestled for 12years and yea i def agree with u about getting ready 4 a practice but i have discovered that running shape and grappling shape is 2 totally different things so i figured best way 2 get ready 4 the practice is 2 just wrestle year round and i used the short runs for my matches never ran more than 3 even though i certainly can

yeah the best cardio you can do for wrestling is definitely live drilling. cardio is very sport specific.

yup cause runnin will get ur lungs going but in a match ur constantly in ur stance like a squat or something and ur muscles get tired and thats something running doesnt do
