    Try not to do it alone if possible. Find a dependable partner to train with.

    Great suggestion. There will be days that you don't feel like training, that is when a good partner will get you motivated.

    LOL


    That is so true.

    I would add find someone who knows how to wrestle to wrestle against. It helps to learn against someone who is experienced. My son is 11 and wrestles with of about 4-6 kids all the same size. Some have won Nat. tourneys. So he really gets great practice partners and teaches. They are always helping him with technique. We are really lucky to have found such a great group of coaches and fellow wrestlers.

    I really like this guy CoachBull, I haven't been around here long, but I imagine he's a fixture.
    Interval training is prob the best thing you can do to get conditioned at this point in time, unless you chose to sign up for that gym ASAP, you might as well just go find a hill and book it up that hill about 5 times, jogging down each time.
    Good distance , just go straight up the steepest hill you can find with two lamp posts between your start and the end.
    Once you've done that you've burnt enough calories in a week to go down a pants size. Plus you can tell me how you feel when your done.

    NOW WRITE THAT DOWN
    ...
    I'll wait
    ...

    okay, now wait till your first match
    only rule here is "don't get pinned"
    you can do that
    anyone can not get pinned if they set their mind to it
    GOT IT

    now tell me how you feel at the end of that match

    write that down...
    i'll wait...

    okay now tell me they don't look almost exactly the same

    "EXHAUSTED"

    this is good training for wrestling
    not very specific, but it will drive you to your edge, just like a match will

    that's mental stamina
    something you're going to need in the future

    Like CoachBull said though
    nothing substitutes for pushing around a guy that's pushing back
    Principle of Specificity

    you could try getting a sled, but that's prob too much for you to handle
    just go sign up to that gym and get some experience on the mat, ask for a wrestling style approach to your training, and ask an experience friend to run you through his drills.
    That last one'd prob be the best idea.
    If you can find someone that you can be partner with during the year and train with him, he'll elevate your game obviously, but eventually if you two train together enough, you'll both propel each other to the next level... now that's money!

    Sound advise. I always liked "Practice Makes Permanent" vice "Practice Makes Perfect". Practice crappy, perform crappy.
