While singlets are the required uniform for wrestling in tournaments, there aren’t any specific requirements for what you wear during practice. As long as your clothing is comfortable and doesn’t restrict your motion, it should be fine to train in. With the heat always turned up in the practice room, most wrestlers wear loose fitting shorts and a t-shirt they don’t mind sweating in. Remember, it always pays off to go hard as often as possible; the more intense you practice, the better you will get and the easier it will be to ‘turn it on’ when it counts. This means the better you perform in practice, the more you will get out of it and the faster your skills will improve. Clothing that will enhance your performance in the practice room will definitely aid in this process. To perform better while training, consider wearing wrestling compression gear. Compression shorts and rash guards are made of spandex or lycra material and will give you a tighter profile and eliminate any loose material flapping around to slow you down. Compression apparel gives your body a slick feel and will slide more than stick to the wrestling mat, allowing you to move faster and get out bad positions easier. Compression clothing will also help reduce mat burn for a more enjoyable experience all around. Compression gear is very affordable and great to train in; check out a great selection at www.highlandsfightgear.com.
