    Winning isn't going to come overnight, and I'm sure you already know that. The same determination that got you involved with wrestling to begin with is what you need to use for building muscle.

    big muscles, however, don't win many wrestling matches. I'm going to spend some time looking for video of Nick Ackerman (he won the NCAA Tournament) Seeing him wrestle will certainly aid in helping you learn different methods of attack that people are not used to seeing against other opponents.

    Here's for you to check out about Anthony Robles (*he wrestles at Arizona State):

    Like Shlottke said, it won't come over night. Keep in mind that starting as a 9th grader puts you behind lots of the kids you're going to wrestle as far as experience goes. A big part of the early stages is learning what not to do on the mat. Just stick with it and keep drilling and working hard.

    It's not an easy sport and no one just gets it technique wise without a lot of practice and hard work. You'll find what works for you and it'll be worth the work when you finally do get that first win.
