    preparing for next wrestling season

    I have 8 months to train for next years wrestling season. So far I know I have to lift weights and improve my technique during those 8 months.

    1. Should I do plyometrics for all that time, or only a few months before the season?

    2. Should I work on speed and muscular endurance during the offseason? If so, what are some good ways to increase my quickness and agility while wrestling? Also, should I do some high rep bodyweight calisthenics in the offseason or just stick to lifting weights?

    What weight class u are in.

    Anything above 160 requires. Very little agility. But its always a plus


    this is gonna be my workout in the offseason. Something i drasticly need.

    Monday: Weight lift/ light run at night time 2miles
    Tuesday: Swim
    Wedsdau: Weight lift/ light run at night time 2miles
    Thursday:Rest
    Friday: Swim
    Saturday: Weight lift/ heavy run at night time 3-4miles
    Sunday: off

    swimming is great for muscular endurance.

    Dont neglect your cardio. If u cant go 3rounds. You can lose alot of matchs.

    I weigh 130 lbs right now, but I plan on bulking and getting to 160 by the time season starts


    Is it really necessary to work on your endurance in the offseason if your not competing?

    I know endurance is very important, probably the #1 most important thing in wrestling. But during the offseason, when Im not competing, is it really necessary to be in awesome shape? I was thinking of getting in shape 2 months before the season starts.

    I would tend to agree, if you are more than 3 months away from an upcoming season, then you don't necessarily have to work on endurance, unless you were REALLY REALLY BAD last season. I would work more on wrestling form, heavy lifting, and explosiveness.

    so what about muscular endurance, do you think I have to work on that consistently throughout the offseason? If so, how can I combine muscular endurance training with strength training?

    what do you think was your biggest weakness last season? Strength, endurance, speed or technique. Whatever you think you need to work on. I wrestled 135 and there were some guys I thought were strong enough to wrestle with the heavy weights. I had everthing else just thought I could be a little stronger. I guess that's why I took an interest in bodybuilding. Maybe hit the weights hard until next season and put on some good lean musle and keep your endurance and speed up. Also practice with people on the team and learn more technical stuff. Technique is the key to wrestling not strength. But it would sure help a lot. I wasn't very strong at all but I had a great opportunity to practice with our captain who was a 4 time state champ and fourth place national finisher in high school. He taught me a lot of technical stuff that made up for my weakness and took me to state my first year. Well i hope this helps so focus on weaknesses. Good Luck!!

    drill drill drill drill drill drill get on a mat and drill atleast 2-3 times a week I wrestle in college right now and all we do in the off season is drill, lift weights 3 times a week and do light cardio but the most important thing to do it drill and get involved in freestyle and greco both will help your mat awareness and give you some matches

    Offseason

    The offseason is the time to build your strength and work on technique and learn new moves. Start your endurance with longer runs in the summer and work to interval training prior to the season. Its noted that it takes 6-8 weeks to hit top conditioning so plan plan plan

    Your bumping up 30 pounds in 8 months? I sugjest a lot of cookies, and high fat foods like McDonalds, because without steroids you probably won't be putting on 30 pounds in 8 months.

    The best thing to get better at wrestling, is wrestling hands down. No matter how much you run, how much you lift, wrestling is always the best - not to mention fun.

    Peopl can put on 30 pounds in 8 months, but they are serious body builders, your a wrestler, you don't need huge biceps, you don't need huge calves, just train your triceps, forearms, legs, and abs.

    If you really want to yolk up, or fat up to 160 than consider completely altering you wrestling style, unless your going to wrestle state you won't find a lot of very fast wrestlers at that weight class, this might be good for you or bad.

    That is quite an achievement assuming he hadn't been wrestling before high school.

    I've been wrestling for 12 years and from my expierence ur nuts to jump up to 160 from 135. Goin from 135 to 152 is tough enough but once u get into 160 plus the kids u'll wrestle are gonna be kids with great strenght and speed. Most those kids cut down from around 170+ to wrestle at that weight, so my suggestion is not to make that big of a jump
