After a long wrestling season, it’s smart to take a little time off to rest and replenish both physically and mentally. However too long of a break and you will quickly get behind your opponents who are hungrier than you. If you want to be good enough to win a state tournament or get a college scholarship, you must do what the top wrestlers do. This means training all year round and taking as few breaks as possible. The top guys don’t play baseball or football, they only train wrestling and they do it all year with as few breaks as possible. It’s an easy equation; if you wrestle a lot more than your opponents, you will eventually surpass the skills of many. By the end of the season, if you’re feeling burned out mentally and/or physically then by all means, time off is in order. However remember the kids who beat you this year and keep them in the back of your mind while you’re resting. Realize that they are most likely continuing to train and getting better while you are not. If you want to be in the top three spots at every tournament you compete in, then take as little time off as possible and get right back into it. While this level of commitment is not for everyone, it’s a definite reality if you want to be a top wrestler.
