  • Wrestlers demand a variety of exercises for training but relax as the variety can be the downfall for your growth.
  • You should take a break from wrestling as it is too exhausted for your body to be active throughout the year for competition and stress. Give your body time to recover and relax and avoid participating in back-to-back competition throughout the year.
  • Your training sessions have no stop. This means never discontinue your training sessions. Even if you do take a break from sessions due to any reason remember you need to start your training from scratch as it will be difficult for your body to immediately get back again for the tough training session.
  • Focus on athleticism
