What weight do you wrestle at? I wrestled 189 while weighing 170-175 last year. I'm going to start doing Westside for Skinny Bastards even though I'm not such a skinny bastard, and take up a good fat loss diet. I'm 185 right now, same as I was last year but a lot stronger and less body fat.
How tall are you, I need to seriously bulk up but right at this moment I am not sure what I should do, I am naturally bulking up with football. I will mostly be going up since I am just starting and have gained some weight (just 10 pounds).
Right now I am 205 6' wrestle at 189, I was the tallest kid in the state for that weight except for the 6'5 kid that I wrestled once. Was in the news once for beating state champion from the latter year as a freshman, but lost most of my matches because I was to weak to do much of anything especially fight back.
Yea, I have considered it, but even at this weight, I'm the best we've got for 189, and the coach says that I really need to be there. We're all set at 171 and 215 already. If I need to, I'll wrestle light at 189 just to help out the team, but I really hate doing that, so if I could just get a few tips, that would be greatly appreciated.
At least you'll be able to laugh at all the miserable wrestlers on the bus who have spent the whole night cutting water...I can't really advocate too much in the way of weight gain this close to season, you'll be able to put on some weight, but at 189 you're going to have a lot of plugs who will sit and wait for you to shoot and just sprawl using a front headlock. Drilling a stellar takedown or throw would be great for someone at a weight disadvantage, especially at those heavier weights where people start to rely a lot on strength advantage. I personally liked an ankle pick, but I never wrestled that heavy, and generally cut around ten pounds of water weight before comp.
I have changed the routine so that there is one LB/UB day and the third day is a whole body day involving power clean and jerks, HSPU's and bodyweight pull-ups a la EDT, and very extensive sandbag work. Cleans are actually my favorite exercise.
