    Men District coming up soon (Advice Needed)

    Now in the season I'm 24-2. I'm going into district next week, on feb 6 and 7th, what should I be focusing on most now? Technique? Strength? Nutrition? Cardio? Thanks for all your tips, and if there's any advice you'd like to share about doing fantastic at regionals and state, I'd appreciate it. Ect, i'm 171 in Texas! Thanks and Peace!

    btw soon i'll be having a vid of my match up for you to critique. Peace.

    It all depends on what you lack. If you strength isn't so good try and get a few lifts here and there. Technique is always important though so of course that. and Cardio with it all.

    What part of texas are you in?

    technique would be what you could most likely improve upon the most in the shortest period of time as opposed to things such as strength and cardio.

    I agree with Boro. Technique will help you more now with the limited time you have left. I would also focus on the secret fourth option (the one you didn't list) match tempo. Practice going HARD in practice, when coach says wrestle live you need to go harder than you've ever gone before. Pick up your intensity in practice, it will translate to increased intensity on the mat. You're going to be hard pressed to get much more strength between now and the post season. You'll also have a hard time getting much more cardio build up. However you do have time to LOSE cardio if you slack off/let up.

    You also have time to condition your mind and body into going harder longer and doing more with less. For instance if you push yourself in practice to the point at which you want to quit and then keep going hard you'll prepare yourself to do that in a match. When it goes deep into the third round and you are both tired and ready to give up you'll know that you can keep going--that you've got more in the tank.

    Finally I'd pose this same question to your coach. He'll have a much better idea of where you need to work.

    Good luck this post season and let us know how you do.
