  1. If you haven’t wrestled much after the season ended because you were in other sports or just took a break, pick up your training again several weeks before going to camp. Most camps require that you show up in shape, and if you're not, you're going to have a rough camp. You’ll get much more out of camp if you show up in shape. Here’s how you do it. At least 3 weeks prior to your camp, get back in the wrestling room twice/week until camp starts. At 3 weeks out, start improving your cardio shape as well with sessions of running, interval training, sprints, etc. At week 3, do two cardio sessions at 30 min. each. At week 2, do one 30 min. session and two 40 min. sessions. For the week right before the camp (week 1), do one 40 min. session and two 45 min. sessions of cardio.
    Here’s an example..
    3 weeks out from camp
    Monday – Cardio 30 min.
    Tuesday - Wrestling
    Wednesday – Off (Weights?)
    Thursday - Wrestling
    Friday – Cardio 30 min.
    Saturday - Off
    Sunday – Off (Weights?)
     
    2 weeks out from camp
    Monday – Cardio 30 min.
    Tuesday - Wrestling
    Wednesday – Cardio 40 min. (Weights?)
    Thursday - Wrestling
    Friday – Cardio 40 min.
    Saturday - Off
    Sunday – Off (Weights?)
     
    Week before camp
    Monday – Cardio 40 min.
    Tuesday - Wrestling
    Wednesday – Cardio 45 min. (Weights?)
    Thursday - Wrestling
    Friday – Cardio 45 min.
    Saturday - Off
    Sunday – Off
    Camp
     
    Don’t forget weight training either. In case you train with weights as well, this is also added into the above schedule to see the best times for incorporating this.

  2. Wrestling camps are a great place to improve your skills over the summer and get ahead of your competition. While some camps are designed to help your technique, while others are to help you get in better shape; all will make you a better wrestler and you should enroll in as many as you can afford. It’s also smart to prepare ahead of time for the camp you’re going to attend. Showing up for camp already in good shape will ensure you get the most out of it. When you’re out of shape, you can easily waste valuable camp training time being gassed out or struggling to keep up. When you know you’ve got a camp coming up, start increasing your training to improve your lungs so you’re fresh and ready to go at camp. Take about 3 weeks in advance to start doing cardio and showing up more to the wrestling room to brush up on technique and get in wrestling shape. It’s also important you show up to camp with the right supplies. Bring several t-shirts with you during the day as you will go through numerous. It’s kind of refreshing to put on a dry, clean shirt in the middle of your sessions; it will make you feel better and help avoid heat and skin rashes. Wearing compression shorts either under your training shorts or as your main clothing is also a smart idea. Wrestling camp training sessions will often last all day and if you don’t wear some type of compression short, chaffing on the inside of the thighs is extremely common and can make your camp experience quite uncomfortable.
