Thread: My Coach's weight training plan

  1. #1

    Default My Coach's weight training plan

    This is my coach's weight training plan. It consists of:

    3x10 Deadlifts
    3x10 Squats
    4x12 Wide grip pull downs
    4x12 Close grip bench press
    4x12 Barbell Rows
    2xF Grip Tool on each hand

    I'm questioning this weight training plan mainly because I am accustomed to and used to a 5x5 strength program plan.

    What does this plan train? For me it seems ineffective and only trains for bulk. But I want to ask your opinion.

    Is there more to this plan than I think or is it just plain ineffective and ignorant?

    Have you or greco actually looked over that 5x5 website? Its not an athletic training website. The first thing it advertises is Build Muscle & Lose Fat Through Strength Training


    and

    Why strength training? Because more strength is more muscle

    It is a vanity website.

    The plan is not "ignorant." Its standard weight lifting procedure for building general muscle and strength. Getting larger muscles is not a pointless activity in itself. having more muscle means more muscle fibers pulling simultaneously, which means you can lift a larger weight.

    In terms of wrestling specific conditioning, i believe that it does not do enough in terms of volume of repetitions. Wrestling is six minutes, not 30 reps. The exercises themselves are good overall large muscle group exercises that are used in wrestling however.

    There are however, many different philosophies on how one should train for wrestling. My opinion is that kettlebells and training bands for speed and time are overall better training methods for wrestling. Others have different opinions. Whats most importnant is that you find what works best for you. it may be that the 5x5 method, though it is advertised on a vanity website, actually is a good athletic way of training. do not immediately discredit training methods until you yourself have tried them.

    I have said it before and I will say it again. Grab kettlebell, swing it, clean it, press it, snatch it, deadlift it. Repeat........

    Ok then back to the topic. Your coach's weight training program needs work.

    No presses of any kind?, No cleans?, No farmer's walk?, No renegade row?, No russian twists?, No lunges?, No pull-ups?, No dips?, No clean and push press?, No front squats?, No one legged dead lifts?, No super-sets doing plyometrics?

    Anything else?

    Nop and keep in mind this is just the workout in the weight room. He can make us do pull-ups and other stuff in the wrestling room.
