As you go through school and the body is still growing, it’s normal to have to move up weight classes each year.  Invariably, you’ll be facing larger boys the further you get in school.  If you’re nervous about facing larger, stronger opponents, then weight lifting is in order.  The problem is there is no time or energy to do this during the season as all efforts must go toward wrestling.  If you want to add muscle to your frame for wrestling, the best time to do this is in the off season and pre-season months.  Keep in mind building muscle takes dedication to a rigorous training schedule that must be consistent for months.  While performing weight lifting at least 3-4 times a week, it’s also important to keep on the wrestling mat at least twice a week to continue to improve your skills and keep in condition.  For the best carry over to the mat, make sure your weight lifting program is balanced and put together specifically for wrestlers.  Weight lifting programs that are performed haphazardly or without a proper coach can quickly lead to overtraining and even injury.  If you’re looking to get bigger, faster and stronger for next season, join the Highlands Wrestling Club for our pre-season training program.  We have an awesome system of sports specific weight training combined with wrestling practice that’s nearly guaranteed to improve both your athletic performance and wrestling skills.  This training tip is brought to you by www.highlandsfightgear.com, your premier source of wrestling gear, fight shorts and awesome apparel for training in.
