Okay well, I'm a junior in highschool I decided a few weeks ago that I'm gonna join wrestling. The first practice is in a week, and the first meet is in less then a month. I am not in great shape but deffinitely not in bad shape. I have bad cardio but decent strength.
I know that the people I will be wrestling have been wrestling for years.
I was wondering what kinds of tips and advice I can get, I don't just want to be ok, or to keep up with my teammates, I want to impress people.
I was also wondering what kind of lifts I shoould work on, I don't do much but bench and a few curls(not smart, I know). I way 140ish(mostly muscle) and I can bench about 10 reps at 145 on a good day.
I think I should start doing alot more cardio, back and, leg exersizes.
I would very much appreciate if somebody could let me know good lifts I could do for wrestling and how much/many weight/reps/set I should start with.
I am planning to(attempt) to run/walk a mile every other day for the next week so I can keep up in practice.
One last thing, I REALLY don't want to wrestle in the 140 category, I was wondering if it is adviseable for me to wrestle at 145, or try do drop to 135.
Also, is cutting weight really required?
Sorry for all the text, I really appreciate any help you can give me.
And sorry if I sound at all cocky.
