    Default I Don't Know whats wrong

    This is my second year wrestling and I'm pretty good at it. I'm a sophomore on JV heavyweight. I had a horrible freshman year not winning a single match, so this year I set some goals for myself. I got a lot stronger since last year and slimmed down a bit so I'm in better shape. This season i got my first win on my second match so it started from there. I started to win more often, although for every 2 wins a loss was soon to follow, and now my record is 5-8. Not too bad in comparison to last season, but after my 5th win I've lost 4 straight. It sucks to see my record go bad because i keep losing. I work hard at practice and I'm an aggressive wrestler, but when I wrestle in a match all my moves turn out unsuccessful.(Some of my moves are the lateral, headlock, bear hug) Most times I also get put on my ass by a trip,so my balance isn't very good.
    any suggestions on what i could do?

    Have you considered that some opponents are better than others? If you had wrestled the 8 guys you lost to first, then gotten 5 wins in a row, you'd probably think that your hard work was paying off. It may help to see tapes of your matches so that you and your coach can analyze why some of your moves are unsuccessful. Continue to train hard and sharpen up your moves and by the end of the season, you will probably have a record that you can be proud of. If you wrestle off season, you'll be ready for the varsity next year. Good luck.

    Getting a portion of your anatomy kicked in your first and second season is not particularly unusual. I think I won 1 match my first year. Looking back on it, it is hard to comprehend how bad a wrestler he must have been.
    Spider has it right. The guy you need to talk to is your coach. Unless you want to post a bunch of video of you wrestling, it is going to be difficult to impossible for us to help you much.
