In many cases, the wrestler with a greater intensity tends to overwhelm his opponent who can't seem to match the same level. Just like all of your wrestling techniques, you can improve and learn to increase your intensity with practice. Being able to turn on a high level of intenisty at will is a powerful skill you must try to develop if you want to be a great wrestler. At some tournaments, you will need to be able to turn your intenisty level on and off 5-6 times/day! Only much diligent practice and hard conditioning will give you the stamina to do this like you will need during a tournament. Develop your intensity levels (and your ability to summon them at will) during wrestling practice. You can do this by always going as hard as possible in training. Unless the coach tells you to drill at a certain level (like 40% for ex.), then you should strive to constantly push the envelope as hard and fast as possible. Stop training less than what you can because you're trying to keep some reserves for the rest of practice! Come at your partner like you're trying to kill him and it will make you both better. Leave every practice with absolutely nothing left in your tank and you will be well prepared for combat. Make total exhaustion your goal from each time you enter the training room.
