    The Harvard wrestling team is featured in the latest issue of ESPN The Magazine. The magazine, which hit newsstands Jan. 17, features the Crimson in its ?Sweat Spot.?

    Last October, ESPN came to one of Harvard?s offseason practices at Harvard Stadium to see what unique training techniques the wrestling team uses. Jay Weiss?s team was photographed running and jumping up the stadium steps, doing wheel barrel races up the stadium steps and also performing fireman carries with their workout partners.

    ?This fall the wrestling room was housed on the other side of the river due to the renovations of the MAC [Malkin Athletic Center], which allowed us to take full advantage off the stadium,? Weiss said. ?We did two or three workouts a week in the stadium which definitely built our guys? stamina and power to helpprepare for the start of the season.?

    Click here to see just a sample of Harvard?s workout. For more, pick up the latest ESPN The Magazine.

    The Crimson returns to action Jan. 26 at the newly-renovated Malkin Athletic Center for dual meets against Lehigh and Army. Harvard takes on the Mountain Hawks at 11 a.m. and the Black Knights at 5 p.m.

    Special thanks to Matt Teuten for providing with photos.
