I am going to join my school’s wrestling team next year, and I was hoping if guys could give me some training advice. I know that technique is the most important aspect of wrestling, but what I am here for is some training advice for over the summer
My current stats are:
BF%: my guess would be 20%, give or take
By the end of the summer, I am hoping to cut down to around 185 (want to wrestle at 189, for height reasons) while at least maintaining (hopefully increasing) my strength.
Right now I am on Rippetoe’s Starting Strength (no bb.com mods, just the program from the book). On off days I work my grip, neck and do cardio.
For those of you unfamiliar with Rippetoe’s it is pretty simple.
I was thinking of adding Bent-over Rows/pull ups and switching one of the days to include either front squats or overhead squats, rather then back squats.
I was hoping that some one here could tell me if I am missing something from the equation or if I need to totally rethink my approach.
