    neck exercise: bridging: this is for a strong neck which is very useful like getting out of pins for instance.
    Lay on the ground perferablly a soft ground in a sit up position and use your neck to lift your body of the ground and hold that position and try to touch your nose on the ground and when you get experienced you can try to flip over and do it in that position or touch ear on the ground then the other ear.

    triceps: dips, close grip bench press

    biceps: hammer curls, barbell curls

    other exercises: pull ups, push ups, wide grip pull ups, also work out your abs, diamond push ups, wide pushups, squats, benchpressing, hanging froma pull up bar as long as u can for forearms, and shoulder workouts like lateral raises

    Just to clarify flip sideways. I find it easier to focus on keeping your head on the match and just kicking my dominant leg over at first.

    Along with the above mentioned (triceps, biceps, etc.) Running is the single second best thing you can do to increase your wrestling strength. (Live wrestling being first.) Run far (I attempt ten miles, but whatever gets you tired) sprint, take a breather repeat. That closly simulates the end of a match where you are forced to act quickly to win and it also gives you a little extra in the tank when your opponet has none.

    Running ten miles is not smart, way too much aerobic activity for an anerobic sport. Tabata sprints, bodyweight workouts, kettlebells, olympic lifts, and circuit training are all things you can do to get more strength, power, muscular endurance, and explosiveness. Interval training and jump roping also helps.

    The best way to not get tired during a match is to WRESTLE MORE. Do live wrestling for 20 minutes with small breaks inbetween each round. Work hard. The preconcieved notion of long distance esque running to help stamina is blinded. We don't wrestle the way we run a 10 mile course.
