    How hard is your wrestling practice?

    I didn't start the season yet so I can't input.

    You can also rate how hard your practice is from a scale of 1 to 10 but I want for there to be some type of discussion.

    Ours is darn close to having a real match as we tend to pair off a lot for practice matches. We also practice technique alone but most of us seem to get it better when we wrestle against a real opponent.

    We started practices yesterday. The first couple of practices will be challenging for the beginners, but we won't start making real demands for a couple of days. The next couple of weeks will weed out a few as we start getting into condition. Once we start technique, I would call the practices "intense" rather than "hard". Nobody will vomit.

    About a 4.

    First week so far has been easy. We've only ran one mile total with ten 100-yard sprints. Tons of drills though and a little live wrestling. My coach said that tomorrow is mainly gonna be conditioning

    We do conditioning every day. Our coach is really big on that. A new coach to our school introduced separators, a 20yard sprint, there and back is one. Six in one separator. Later on we do sets of six (or we did last year). Also, 2-minute shot drills already and spin drills.
    So right now I'd say about a 6, but it'll ramp up.

    9/10 every day I'd say.
    Were in the Top 8 for Ohio so we have to practice like we are.
    Run 40 minutes before practice every day. About 1 hour of speed drilling (Drilling but never stopping...second you take someone down, you jump back up and do it again, and when your done you just run in your circle a bit while you wait), one 2-2-2 match. Then 50 push ups, 50 crunches, Max pull ups..water break. Then drill top and bottom. for about an hour. 15 -20 minutes of condition every day. 30-45 minutes of weight room

    Well I am no longer competing but during high school I would say we were at a 6-7. During the post season we practiced with another team and I would say they were at a 8-9.

    I was doing 2-3 workouts a day so I was not that worried about one practice being too intense.


    My senior year one of my private coaches was a national champ and he talked to me about wrestlling in college and how it was important to find a school that was a good fit for your style.

    He knew the big ten was not a good fit for him so he chose a school that would best fit his skillset. I can assure you he worked his butt off and his national title proves it.

    Don't just grind it out just to say worked hard. Find your style and work out accordingly.

    How hard is my wrestling practice?

    Harder than yours. No school works harder than my school, and that is why when it comes to overtime, you may be better than me, but I've got plenty in the tank to get that takedown when it matters the most.

    6 AM - Lifting / Video / Conditioning
    3 - 6 PM - Practice. Warm ups -> hard drills -> technique -> live situations -> live wrestling -> running (sprints)/plate time (continuous lifting while half of the team runs walls (sprints in the wrestling room) and then the two groups switch)

    10/10
