Today, i lost my second wrestle off match for varisty. Last time because I just froze and got pinned. This time, it was 19-4 and my opponent won by technical superiority or something. They say its because I was on my back too much and I should get to my belly so they can't score points. But when im on my belly, I am prone to things like the half nelson and cradle and crossface cradle. I guess on my belly is better than giving them back points, but what should I do on my belly? I usually try to stand up, but I am not strong enough or too tired and I am pushed down to my back.
So what should I do on my belly to standup or reverse for points?
Is there a good way to save energy during a match? because it makes me very tired and I am working hard on sprints and stairs and jogs like our coach tells us to
We learned to pry our opponents fingers off to escape the half nelson, but if I am giving a half nelson, how can i prevent them from prying off my fingers?
Do southpaw wrestlers have an advantage on shooting because they dont have to take a larger step than orthodox? I am somewhat ambidextrous, so I am thinking switching my stance from orthodox to southpaw whenever I am about to shoot. It won't be so obvious because I am not going to shoot right away.
Also, is it illegal to scream in a high pitch right before going for a takedown for the first time to knock their balance out or randomly during the match just to annoy him/her?
