A New Season

I haven't posted to this blog for a long time.  I have been spending most of my time on my website http://essentialwrestler.webs.com/.  I haven't forgotten about wrestling.  I haven't forgotten about strength and conditioning either.  September will soon be over and wrestling season is fast approaching.  I hope you have been staying in condition and not simply waiting for the season to begin to get yourself in shape.

I have been reading a lot lately about the importance of the aerobic system as it pertains to combat sports.  The aerobic system is involved to a much higher degree than early research lead people to believe.  Read some artilces by Joel Jamieson at http://www.8weeksout.com/2012/02/23/roadwork-2-0-the-comeback/ to learn more.

Essentially, a wrestler needs to make sure they do some aerobic conditioning.  Eevn though wrestling is a very explosive sport at times, a wrestler also needs the endurance to wrestle the entire six minutes.  There is a tradeoff between power and endurance.  Sprints and high-instensity interval training (HIIT) can be effective too if not done in excessive amounts.  And, you don't need to do a high volume of aerobic work (e.g. 100 miles a week) at a slow pace.  Doing some longer runs of 30-60 minutes two or three times a week at a fairly good clip can be beneficial.  A balance of aerobic and anaerobic work is best.  You really need to read some of Joel Jamieson's articles regarding energy systems and especially the aerobic system.

I have also been watching a lot of videos lately.  Here are some moves I'm interested in lately:
  • Shrug to Inside Trip by Will Rowe
  • The Superduck or Super Duck Takedown
  • Sweep Singles
  • Russian or 2-on-1 Tie
  • Bow and Arrow Wrestling Move
  • Radman Ride by Granby School of Wrestling
  • Inside Bar Series (Granby School of Wrestling) or Hammerlock
  • Spiral Ride
  • Granby Roll
  • Peterson Roll
I'm looking forward to the season starting.  In addition to your conditioning check out my website, read some of Joel Jamieson's articles, and watch some videos.
