I posted plenty about what I did at OTC… here is the nutshell
I had a shit record in college- but had excellent take downs and good greco.
paid once to go to a clinic there for 4 days
went again in 91 to train with the guys going to 92- again shit record was onorthodox enough to get noticed.
Nevr won anything big a tournament or two but took down or roughed up or embarrassed enough people to get a slot to get beat up as basically a few guys I wrestled and had taken down where there,their coaches new me.
my coach was very very heavy into greco He did worlds was an NCAA champ blah blahblah
He Got a Letter from Dan Chandler- who saw me at a tournament he was like a Jr coach.
I tried to spend as much time in the wrestling room as possible and really only know what people my weight 130-140 did in the weight room not every one or bigger guys.
we did 2 or 3 sessions a day
run distance, or hills , sprints in the am
sprints forwards backwards, jumps, shuttle runs , agility ladders etc.
usually til someone puked. I did plenty.
I cried too.
a big after noon wrestling practice that also included running & calisthenics
pull ups and ropes but mostly wrestling
weights or track work 2x a week in the pm or another wrestling class/training
we did sprints hills hurdles box jumps and lots and lots of and lots of broad jumps
in the weight room we did this is little guys, not big dudes I dont know what they did.
power cleans Power cleans
snatch both with barbell and db
pullups all day
some snatch pulls and snatch deadlifts
med ball junk
and lots of unilateral leg work like BSS
this is the first time I saw lots of stuff that I never saw before and forgot plenty.
Bar Bell complexes
and rubber bands for sprinting , driving, or shooting
the S&C dude who we called the trainer was eastern block and had fucking square balls.
he said do it.
you did it.
he also taped your shit, your knees ears etc.
He worked for Javorek.
we had sessions like dan john writes about
sprint power clean or front squat sprint repeat
or stuff you can find on the web body weight squat or clean for reps in the 30’s 40’s 50’s or more.
same with pull ups.
this is 91 so some people you know where there
I was just another piece of meat- there to get beat up.
