    Electric!! 35 yr old needs excercise routine advice

    Greetings all,

    I help coach my 9 yr olds wrestling club, and have been fighting injuries pretty much this whole season. I pulled a hip flexor muscle drilling takedowns with a 160lb 14 yr old, and pulled quads another month. The hip flexor is healing slow, but is healing since I have decreased physical involvement at practice.
    Here's my question- I am not in bad shape, I think I need to focus on more on warming up , strengthening my core, and increasing flexibility. Can anyone advise me as to how I might do that best before next season. I am 35 yrs old, about 160, and 5' 5".
    I don't want to bulk up. I am looking for a good full body strengthening workout that will help on the mat for next season and prevent injury.
    Thanks Chris

    I would start with quad and hip flexor rehab stretches

    Also, don't wait. Start now. Greco, Jensen S, and gjfovf all have different plans but all are focused on strength and conditioning. I am a big believer in kettlebell training. Check out my log.

    I am planning on starting as soon as I can. I want to give my hip a little while longer. I don't know where to view your log. I'll try searching kettleball.
    Thanks

    my log is in this forum under gjfovf's log, and it is kettlebell, not kettleball.
