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.
