Need Advice


#1

Hey, I need some advice on getting back started working out. I used to workout regularly but slacked off when I first got to college and now unfortunately Im back to being a beginner. I wrestle for the University of Alabama and Im wanting to gain some strength. Im not interested in size right now, only because I have to keep at a certain weight class during the season. I plan on trying to put on some bulk during the offseason. What kind of exercises and sets/reps would you recommend for someone in my situation. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. I am after all here to learn.

What kind of wrestling program do they have that they aren't having you lift?


#3

Seriously though (I had to get the asshole out of my system), I'd stick to the core lifts and keep reps per set under 6 since you don't want to gain much mass, and lots of core stabilization work. I haven't wrestled since high school, but that was basically what I did in season.

Well thanks to title 9, we only have a club program here like almost all SEC teams so Im kinda on my own for lifting.

Yessir...

Title 9 can suck my left nut, our wrestling program was also a victim, but we couldn't swing a club wrestling team.

On second thought I don't think I'd let title 9 near one of my nuts, let alone both of them.

Check out some of Waterbury's articles.He's pretty much got articles to cover everything.For your particular question the rep/set bible would be a good place to start.
