youre so stupid sometimes jesus
Sorry to hear that. Do what the doctors tell you and you'll be back wrestling eventually - maybe in time for the summer season. And men are allowed to cry.
yea i like doing leg press my max is about 520 4 times on good days
good luck in your tournament
congrats on your win keep working hard and you should win plenty more matches
i played football too it helps you get stronger on your feet and you get better balance i was a lineman so i spent a lot of time squatting, doing deadlifts and leg press to get stronger legs which helps create good balance
For my diet, i just ate smaller portions, but healthier foods for breakfast you can eat a bowl of oatmeal made with water instead of milk
if you ever want to eat a snack keep some fruit or vegetables cut up into pieces in a container since they're there you won't want to get something else instead
for lunch I would have a PB&J and about 4 oz. of milk(peanut butter for protein, I only used whole grain bread and drank skim milk) and then i would drink a few oz. of water throughout the day until practice
for dinner I also had oatmeal on off days when i wouldnt workout as much and on regular days I would eat fresh baked chicken with any kind of veggies or pasta like spaghetti with little sauce
drinking a lot of water really helps when losing weight so don't drink soda or sugary drinks stick to water and every now and then a gatorade is fine
it took me a month of eating less and exercising more to see improvements so dont give up too quickly
when you do the lateral you have to circle with your opponent and get an over and under tie-up so your left arm goes around his right arm with his elbow inside of yours, your right arm should go under his left arm and wrap your palm onto his shoulder make it tight by using your left fist and driving it towards your right elbow. then circle the mat while backing into him and drop to your left knee ( some people do it from standing position i like dropping to my knee) while pulling down with your right arm (it should still be pinching his until you bring him down) and lifting with your right execute the drop while tilting from your knee fast or else he can counter by pushing into you. it sometimes feels like you can't finish it when you're going down but it does work as long as you keep the hold practice it a lot and ask your coach about its better to see it then read it
hey im a 270 HW and i know what you mean my first year i was just heavy set,lost every match, and had trouble making weight so i started a diet and workout plan lost some weight gained a lot of muscle and now im a pretty decent wrestler. strength helps so work on building that during the off season. after losing the weight and bulking up i got a lot faster pretty fast for a big guy so that should work for you next season. one thing i regret doing was not going to a wrestling camp after freshman year it really helps you improve as a wrestler so ask your coach about any camps.
the lateral is a good move against a guy that is about the same height as you whether they're fast or not if you get the hold right you can make the lateral work against anyone
just pummel for a while until you can get a tie-up over with your left and under with your right keep it tight by making a fist with your left hand and push it towards your right elbow
Other than that, I would add eating several small meals instead of one huge meal per day, reward yourself with something (of reasonable preportion) on the dont eat list as a once a week reward for practicing extra hard (as I know you do), for doing extra training after practice (try adding 100 of something (pull-ups, mountain climbers, sprawls, shadow shots, dummy throwing, etc) every day after practice is over. At the end of the week, you will have earned yourself a double scoop frozen yogurt or something. The year I won D2 Nationals, I would put 2 lite beers in the fridge Sunday night. I made a deal with myself that if I did 100 things extra every practice I would get one of those ice-cold beers after Friday's practice if we were home. I would get the other beer if no one took me down in practice the entire week. Man, those were some good beers, and I never missed one! Good luck Brother!
Sorry about your loss at the tourny Saturday. As far a cutting weight, a diet that is balanced with good, low fat protein (chicken breast, white fish, lean pork and beef, tofu,) plenty of veggies, small amount of carbs (don't go for a no-carb diet, as an athlete, you really need to have enough energy to work hard daily) and small amount of fat. Try to avoid sweets, fryed foods and (most important) try not to drink ANY calories except a glass or two of 1% milk each day (calcium and vitamin D very important for wrestlers). Avoid drinking regular sodas, gatorade/powerade (250 calories per bottle!) fruit juices (except low calorie cranberry juice) even vitamin water. Diet drinks, Propel for post match recovery and diet sweetened waters if you want are ok. You need plenty of fluid to train and to compete, but there is no reason why you must drink 150-350 calories at a shot which is what most of these sports drinks contain.
El Camino High in Sacramento? I went to Sacramento H.S. Kevin Johnson (the NBA Hall of Famer and current mayor of Sacramento) was in my younger brother's class there and they played on the freshman football team together my senior year. We tried talking him into going out for wrestling, but he chose BB instead. Good choice, I guess!
No, I don't have any tapes, when I wrestled there were not very many. If you want to see some good heavyweight tapes emphasizing my thoughts on heavyweight offense, check out these guys on You Tube or on ThewrestlingTalk tape archives: Dan Severin, Kirk Troust, Bruce Baumgardner, Dustin Fox, Tom Erickson. Good luck in your tournament.
By the way Brother Jesus, where do you wrestle?
So my advice would be to stay away from straight shot doubles. Moves that I think have a good percentage of success for us big boys are moves that use tie-ups as a set up to single leg take downs. Things like underhook to one side, (while controlling the other wrist of course) driving with your head into opponents cheek or chin, lower level and pick up the single at about the knee to mid-thigh range with both hands. For heavys, this works best if we don't drop to our knees, instead trying to "snatch" the leg from a slight bend/squat. Other good heavweight moves that work the same principal are high crotch shot with the head on the outside, and snap-downs -either all the way down to the mat or into a front headlock. Both of the finishes for the snap downs allow you to get your opponent under your chest and stomach, making him vunerable to just what we were talking about in the beginning, being stuck under the weight of a big man! Good luck!
Hello Brother SuperHeavyWeightCamp,
You asked about good moves for 250lb+ warriors. There are LOTS of good moves for big guys, too many to list of course. More importantly, IMO, are moves NOT to hit unless you have some of the natural power of a Baumgartner, Banach or Steven Neal. Unlike most big men, these three guys were all able to hit straight on, freight-train double leg takedown. Most big guys are just too heavy to shoot at straight on without getting caught under their sprawl.
