    Default Which is better to do at practice

    Refine moves you already have down well(Im good at putting in 2 legs and crossfacing them to their back as well as throws) or should i put myself into bad positions(Im horrible on bottom).

    Basically what im asking is should i spend most my time ont op riding legs and doing throws or should i spend more time working on what im bad at(bottom position and shooting)

    You need to work on both man. Keep improving what you are already good at and practice what you need work on. Focus more on the move/positions you are bad at but remember to practice on the stuff you are good at or you will get better at the bad stuff and worse at the stuff you had down before. Hope this helped!

    i agree with brad. if you dont continue to practice what your already good at you will mostly likely forget it or it wont come to you as second nature during awrestling match. a good thing i like to do is i either get to practice early and roll around with some1 on the team and practice one move im not so good at over and over and over and then use it when we wrestle live during the actual practice. thats a good way to practice moves your not to great at and something i do to practice moves that im good at is i "shadow wrestle", its just like shadow boxing. its also a good way tp practice moves that your not to good at when you dont have anybody around who you can practice with.

    The point of practice is to perfect your game. You need to be a well rounded wrestler (top, bottom, nuetral) and work on all three phases every day. You can't be a one trick pony and expect to dominate.

    build an arsenal, don't just have a few go to moves, at the big tournaments people catch on.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    Gotta agree with brother VA, build an arsenal, however, I like to think of an arsenal as being a variety of moves from the same setup or reaction. For example, my favorite move from an overhook was a firemans carry and I drilled this thousands of times, but I also drilled lots of barrel-rolls, arm-throws and high crotch singles from the same position so I had an automatic "plan b" if my opponent wasnt presenting just right for the firemans. Same goes with your other basic positions- drill your A game until you can do it in your sleep, but also have 3-4 other offensive moves from the same spot.

    If you solely work on your successful moves, your common opponents, conference, district talent, will come to know you so well, they'll be able to neutralize your go to moves. You need to continually develop new material, like a stand up comic. Run the same old, same old and you stop becoming a threat. Also, most wrestlers do not spend enough time working their defensive moves. Remember there is always someone as or more aggressive than you out there, with as much or more knowledge. If you don't practice fending off shots, you have no chance with those on top of the dog pile.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.
