Tip & How-To about Wrestling
When training for wrestling, you should focus on three things: grip strength, pulling strength, and hip and leg strength. Grip strength is essential in all levels of wrestling because wrestlers use their hands in pretty much every part of the match. Exercises that improve grip strength include pull ups (can be done weighted as well if bodyweight pull ups are too easy), farmers' walk, reverse curls, and bar curls. Pulling strength is essential in wrestling as well because the wrestler uses his pulling strength in many ways during the fight (during takedown, when fighting for position, etc.). Exercises that improve pulling strength include back exercises like lat pulldown, pull-ups, and standing and seated rows. Other exercises include bicep curls and shrugs. Hip and leg strength is essential for explosiveness and increased flexibility. Exercises that improve hip and leg strength include squats and lunges.

Yes, there are many changes that wrestling do to your body like a
slight hunch in posture and lack of stability.
Constantly circling with your hands up to block attacks can cause a slight
change in center of gravity and the intense training and eating routine before
competition can make your body unhealthy.
