1 Sample High School Wrestling Weight Training Program West Chester, PA By Dean Donley

2 1. Introduction This is an example of a strength training program that was developed for a high school wrestling team. There are many philosophies on the most effective supplemental training methods for wrestlers. This sample is intended to provide you with a basic plan and philosophy that you can then modify to meet the needs of your team. The program begins with analysis of the needs of wrestlers, and an identification of the facilities we have available. For the actual training portion of this document, initially my philosophy for the period of time following the end of the year, the Post Season is provided. Then, detailed strength training programs are provided for the summer months Off-Season and fall Pre-Season. Finally, a very brief discussion of our in-season training is provided. 2. Sport & Movement Analysis: High School Wrestling The sport of wrestling is unique in many ways. Wrestlers must try to apply and resist force utilizing all body limbs and core strength throughout a match, often using multiple parts of the body simultaneously. Wrestlers rarely, if ever, have the benefit of working from a stable base of support. Finally, there are body composition and weight classification components to consider. The off-season program provides a strong strength and power base from which to build and then progresses to more sport specific training in the pre and in-season training programs. The sport specific strength training will attempt to simulate the demands of the sport by using an unstable base of support and increasing the core involvement with balance balls, sandbags. The use of any assistance exercises where the core is supported such as weight training machines will be minimized. The program will emphasize the use of dumbbells over barbells as the season approaches (bench press vs. the dumbbell fly.) Grip and neck strength play a major role in wrestling, so they will be emphasized more than is probably typical as the season approaches.

3 3. Workout Facilities Note the Hammer Strength Gripper bottom right And 4- way neck center left a. Approximate square footage 2800 sq. ft with mirrored walls. b. Equipment i. 3 Power Racks = 6 stations adaptable for squats and bench press. ii. 2 Olympic Lifting platforms iii. 2 multi-exercise pulley stations iv. Life Fitness Machines 1. Leg Extension 2.

4 vi. Dumbbells from 5 to 100lbs vii. Sufficient plates and bars to accommodate all necessary exercise, ability and strength requirements. viii. Cardio 3 treadmills, 7 elliptical machines, 4 stationary bikes, 1 upper body ergometer. 4. Warm-up All strength and conditioning sessions start with adequate warm-up of the large muscle groups and core to include at least 15 minutes typically consisting of light jogging, basic foot patterns (high skipping, shuffling, butt kicks etc), rope skipping, and/or available aerobic machines. Dynamic stretching follows the core warm-up with activities including but not limited to: forward lunge knee hug, side lunges, inch worm (from push up position walk feet to hands and then hands away from feet to the yoga cobra position - repeat); spiderman (from push-up position step one foot just outside the hand on that side with knee bent and drop that elbow towards the floor repeat on the other side); and scorpion (lie flat on the stomach with hands out forming a T then bring one foot to towards the opposite hand rotating the trunk). The first set of all weight training exercises use 50% of the workout weight for that session. The exercise order should proceed as listed basically organized in an alternating Push Pull format. Each training session ends with a cool down. The cool down mirrors the warm-up with an emphasis on static stretching over dynamic. As an aside, in the past, I have used yoga for both warm-up, cool-down and active rest days. The flexibility benefits are obvious, but the breathing techniques have improved our ability to lift safely and effectively with muscle locks, handle competitive stress and optimize match fitness. Rest and testing are included because of the age-group and the load increases are not exceptionally dramatic. Test weeks are used as weeks to decrease the weights used. I feel high school athletes need to stay fresh with multiple breaks, changes in exercises, and frequent feedback to perform effectively. Post Season Active Rest March & April A number of our wrestlers choose to continue to compete after the completion of our season. Weekend tournaments are available and a local club holds practices.

5 Practices are far less intense and only 2 nights per week. The focus of this time period is to have fun with the sport. Wrestlers should try new techniques and not worry about weight. They should go to tournaments with their friends with minimal coach and parent involvement. It should be noted that I encourage these same principles during the season. Obviously, the intense competitive environment of the scholastic season provides some challenges to this approach and our coaching staff is more involved. We do not strength train or condition during this period. Recreational activities are strongly encouraged. Off- Season May-September The focus of this time period is to develop a solid strength and power foundation upon which to build. Cardiovascular conditioning is not a major concern. We have never had a problem establishing a very high level of cardiovascular fitness by the first competition. RM below refers to Repetition Maximum. In other words, the most amount of weight the individual can do for the specified number of repetitions. Ex. 10RM = the highest amount of weight the individual can do 10 times. Week 1 - Pretesting & Goal Setting Monday Test preparation - Review exercises, spotting and safety techniques for the exercises we will test. Practice the testing procedure we will follow on test day with extremely light loads, single set, low repetitions. Wednesday Test Day Other exercise testing will precede power, non-power and assistance exercise testing. Sufficient rest will be provided.

13 Weeks *Note I have avoided all power exercises with the exception of the power clean and hang clean as they are the most important for wrestling and for safety reasons. Our coach to athlete ratio is limited, so adequate supervision is a concern. For the same reason, I will not be testing or utilizing any 1RM loads.

Off-Season Final Posttesting Exercises Power Nonpower Assistance Exercises Other Core 5RM 6 RM 10 RM Power Cleans Front Squats Curl Bar Curls Vertical Jump Balance Ball Triceps pulley pushdown Pull-ups to failure Dumbbell Fly (machine) Dumbbell Standing Shoulder press Max crunches 1 minute Low Pulley Seated (on Balance Ball) Row (machine) Sit & Reach test Saturday Plyometrics Week 17 - Active Rest/Vacation There is some risk of a loss of strength gains considering the light loads of the previous 2 weeks, but I believe the value of the time off after a 16 weeks of Off- Season Training is worth the risk. This gives the athletes a break before school starts. They will not receive another significant break until the wrestling season ends in 7 months.

15 Pre- Season - September-November The focus now is to continue to build strength but in a manner more specific to wrestling. Muscle endurance cannot be sacrificed for extensive time devoted to power development. New to the conditioning program is the beginning of cardiovascular development and skill training begins, somewhat reducing the time available for strength conditioning. Warm-up The rhythmic large muscle activities duration and intensity increase gradually to begin to build an aerobic cardiovascular base. Dynamic stretching is followed by 30 min of light basic techinique drilling 2 days a week. Standing (takedowns) are drilled on Monday lower body days and mat drilling is on Tuesday - upper body days. New Strength and Conditioning Exercises Sandbag exercises are introduced to develop grip strength and power. o Sandbag squat toss Pictures 2& 3 o Sandbag squat rotation toss Pictures 4 & 5 o Sandbag partner trunk rotation Picture 6 Wall mounted, spring loaded, takedown dummies are introduced for squat repetitions w/double leg technique Picture 7 A Pulley tricep snapdown exercise simulates a headsnap takedown in stance and involves core strength and power Picture 8 Single Leg Romanian Deadlift for strength applied with balance Picture 9 Bent over Row single leg and arm balance ball support Picture 10 Exercises are performed in an opposing muscle Superset format with limited rest time. For example, work biceps then triceps. Anaerobic Conditioning Middle Distance & Sprint Intervals
