If you’ve stumbled across this blog, it’s probably because you have a child that’s new to wrestling. Before they begin wrestling practice, make sure your child is conditioned appropriately. It will make their time on the mat much more enjoyable.
Start out with these at-home workouts:
- Endurance workouts - sprints, suicides, even a good run at the park
- Push-ups and shoulder workouts
- Wall sits
- Jump squats
Once your child has been wrestling for a while, lifting weights can soon follow. It’s important to work closely with your child’s coach to know what weight is appropriate for the little athlete to lift.
