    About me?:

    Hi my first name is Joe. I am 16 years old and I am a junior in high school. I live in New Jersey, USA. I weigh 135 lbs and I believe I am 5'9 (or a little higher, not sure). I played wrestling for 3 years, not counting my sophomore year(last year) where I couldn't wrestle due to injury. The injury was 2 broken bones between my elbow and wrist.

    EDIT: I just took a hydration test today. I totaled in at 7 percent body fat and I am going to wrestle the weight class 140. At the time of the hydration test when I forced myself to drink a lot of water I was 139.4 pounds. And I am 5'10 feet tall.

    I am planning to go into my 4th year of wrestling in high school. I am planning to be the best that I could be and enter states competition and do good. I am well aware that it will take heaps of effort and motivation. And I've got a long way to go. So I need all the motivation and advice I can get.

    Goals:


    • Bench 200
    • Squat 200
    • Do 5 pull-ups without assist - Do 10 pull-ups without assist ... etc
    • Do 5 Chins with 22 pound assist - 10 reps after. Then without assist
    • 10 dips - 15 dips - 20 dips ... etc (good form)
    • Gain weight while not gaining more fat but losing, get to 150 1bs
    • 40 push-ups - 50 - 60 ... etc
    • 40 sit-ups - 50 - 60 ... etc
    • 30 squat jumps - 40 - 50 ... etc


    Jog 20 minutes straight at speed of "6.0"- 30 minutes- 40 minutes- ...etc.
    Sprint 2 mins 30 secs at speed of "10.5-11" - 3 mins - 3 mins 30 secs ...etc

    Plan:


    I will use the 5X5 plan. I will workout somewhere between 3-4 days a week to the best of my ability. I will see how this goes because I am a student in high school and wrestling practice is starting oct-28. Also I work out at a gym.

    Editted Plan:

    I will do body workouts every day as I have realized the gym isn't enough. I will also take jogs around the park as much as possible given the chance and time.

    Current Stats:


    • Squats - 115 pounds
    • Bench Press -115 pounds
    • Pull-ups Max (no assist) - 4 =/
    • Dips Max -7
    • Knee Raises max -20


    I will increase 5 pounds every week.

    • Squats - 5X5 115 pounds
    • Bench Press - 5X5 115 pounds
    • Pull Ups (assists 22 pounds =( ) - 5XF - 5,6,5,7,5
    • Dips - 5XF - 5,5,7,6
    • Knee Raises -5XF - 20,15,17,15,13
    • 1 minute jog, 1 minute and a half sprint (maybe 2 don't remember)
    • 40 blocks walked (to gym and back)


    The squats were kind of hard. I think I should do much better. At this point, the pull ups are giving me a real struggle. I'm not good at them. And with out any assist I can't complete one set of 5 and after that my arms would be extremely tired. The dips were also hard, I struggled a lot with them. They hurt my shoulder and chest a lot. Which I know is a good thing because it means that my muscles are getting stronger.

    I don't feel like this is a good day, I am dissapointed in how much my strength got weaker and cardio since I didn't play wrestling last year (due to injury).

    Also I tried chin-ups today. I felt extremely uncomfortable and had a lot of trouble doing them. I also forgot about the leg-press today.

    You shouldn't do squat workout one right after another; you'll burn yourself out, especially your legs. You need rest for your legs to grow and get stronger. I squat 2x a week. I usually rest 48 hours until my next squat session. For example: If I squatted on Monday, I would squat again on Thursday. Some weeks I only rest 24hours, but that's only if it's a short week. So basically you need at least 48hours of rest between squat sessions.

    • 3 1/2 mile jog with a bit of sprinting
    • Push ups - 30 - 20 - 15 - 10
    • Chair dips - 20 - 20 - 15 -10 - 5
    • Hindu Squats - 40 - 35 - 30 - 25 - 20

    I was unable to complete the workout. I was feeling very light headed, fatigued, and exhausted after the squats. Most likely because I had very low calorie-intake today (lower than normal or anything healthy) and the jogging did take its toll on me. =/

    Joe i was also from new jersey so I will keep an eye on you.

    It seems you will lack a little experience at the state level but you can make up for that with heart/mental toughness and conditioning.

    Stay focused on the basics, make sure you stay in good position at all times. That means stay in a good stance, hands up and out, and on your toes. Guys get sloppy and get out of their stance or drop their hands, stick their butt out and lean their shoulders over their feet. Fundamentals are the key forget about all the fancy moves. If you spend the next three months really practicing the details of keeping a good stance and having solid basic technique you will be fine.

    Most of all completely believe in yourself. Do not give any opponent respect. I do not mean that you should be cocky or not prepare for an opponent. What I mean is do not go into a match thinking the other guy should win because of past accomplishments, rankings, or critics predictions. Tell yourself that you are the best and that you will outwork your opponent.

    Wrestling is a mental sport if you believe that you will win and you wrestle with that belief you will put yourself in the best possible position.

    Thanks!

    Your right, I do lack the state - level experience. Farthest I went was regional (it was a very disappointing loss. =/ and placed at 4th place ) Thanks for the advice but I do believe I have very good basics. But I'll keep an eye on that.

    I gotta say I am a bit frustrated with myself at this point. Because I did lose a noticeable amount of endurance, strength, and conditioning since not wrestling last year due to injury.

    But I'll do my best to make up for that.

    I think every wrestler needs to learn this fully before they can get better in wrestling.

    I sort of disagree.

    I would agree that if you're just jumping into serious lifting then squatting each and every day is probably a bad call.

    However once you've been on an intense lifting plan for a while I don't think you'd have any problems with it.

    I do variations of squats three times a week. Usually Monday/Tuesday/Thursday in terms of a split, but at times due to schedule I'll go Monday-Wednesday.

    it depends on the lifting plan
    since i lift more like gifovf, kettlebells, bodyweight etc, i can lift the same muscle group more often per week, since im not really even isolating muscles

    if you do heavy and bulk, or greco's 5x5 plan, you are going to have to give your muscles a rest, because your legs are isolated, and then hammered
