Tip & How-To about Wrestling

Wrestling workouts

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.
