Thread: Brand New Wrestler

  1. #1

    Default Brand New Wrestler

    Hey guys
    I'm a sophmore, 15 years old, and im starting wrestling for the first time this year. I weigh 145 pounds and am around 5'10. I tested in at about 10% body fat.
    I was looking for any advice, tips, or hints that will help me get to the top. I'm determined to become a great wrestler.
    Any ideas on my weight and what I should do with it?
    Also, any workout plans or tips that you can offer up?

    Thanks, appreciate any help I can get.

    Pinned,

    1: Change your handle. Make it something more dominant sounding like "Pinner" "The Pinner" "Bone Crusher"
    2: listen to your coaches, ask questions, watch video, absorb as much knowledge as you can
    3: spend as much time on a mat as possible
    4: wrestle anyone around you that won't hurt you
    5: don't get frustrated, we all have taken our lumps. Even Olympians were first year wrestlers (expect maybe Cael ;^)
    6: start lifting hard
    7: watch what you eat
    8: go to camp
    9: get in great physical shape - run in the mornign before school, take the extra step
    10: get the support of your parents, bring them to a meet, introduce them to your coaches, let them know how much you like the sport.
    11: keep your grades up so your folks don't take away wrestling as punishment
    12: when you are a senior and someone suggests you find a job, know you will have plenty of time to get a job (you will work the rest of your life), but you will never have a chance to wrestle again
    13: have fun!
    14: develop your own style
    15: wrestle wrestler wrestle...anyone, everyone.
