    Cutting 24 pounds is too much for a 121 pounder. Man Americans are crazy with their weight loss. Mankiev cut only 8 pounds he said.

    I heard him talk about his training and how he said they only wrestled 2 times a week and the rest the just lifted weights. Thats pretty much the main reason Americans pretty much lose to Russians and other great countrys. They focus to much on their physical needs like strength, when they rarely focus on their technique, and as you know Russians have pretty much the best technique in the world; not saying that they don't have good conditioning also. Russians spend hours on the mat pretty much everyday, while Americans spend all their hours on weights.

    I agree completely, especially given these rules. Strength and conditioning just isn't as important as it was back in the day, for better or for worse.

    Technique and strategy is the most key, and you get that by drilling and wrestling, not by lifting weights, and cutting 24 pounds.

    I was glad to see Mango make his first Olympic team, but if he's truly cutting that much then he'd be better served filling our 60 kg spot, especially if Warren still can't lay off the ganga.

    Probaly the only thing i would do for condition and strength is just bodyweight training, resistance training, running and a little kettleball stuff. That would be perfect. Not really any weight and it shouldn't take that long to get done. I would probaly spend around 1-1.5 hours of doing that. Besides that, i would wrestle for hours. Also you can get some conditioning done in wrestling by doing stuff like body lifts using your partner and some sprints. Your only gonna get better by spending hours practicing and drilling wrestling moves than spending hours in the weight room.
