"Off season work leads to post season success"
This is a quote I live by as I train for wrestling 12 months out of a year.
A little bit about me, I started wrestling my sophomore year in high school, and fell in the love with the sport. I love every moment I spend on the mat and in the weight room. I lettered all three years I wrestled in high school, and was the most improved wrestler last year with a 4th place finish. This year my goal was to win the state championship, but I fell just short of that goal. And I'll never get a chance to accomplish that goal the rest of my life. But my wrestling career is not over, I was extended an offer during the Metro Dual tournament from the school I am planning on studying at, and I am excited to compete at the next level.
My best numbers were:
I wrestled 160 this year, but I am cutting to 152 for Liberty Nationals in KC.
Upcoming Tournaments I plan on wrestling in:
Liberty Nationals (American Crown) Championships
Midwest Folkstyle Championships
Nebraska AAU State
Nebraska USA State
Midwest Classic Nationals
Nebraska Junior State Freestyle and Greco-Roman
Northern Plains Regional Freestyle and Greco-Roman
Sunday I began lifting again with Chest and today with Back. I also practiced today with one of the coaches at my school. I will practice Monday-Thursday this week and prob lift Tuesday and Wednesday before leaving on Friday. I will be lifting probably 4 times a week, and wrestling as much as possible at my school, my rival school(know their coaches and friends kids on their team), and at a wrestling club ran by an Alum from my school who was an Olympic Alternate for Greco. Also my lifts have definately gone down, so my lifts may appear lulzy for a little while.
