Wrestling Strength Training
I have a question to wrestlers.
See, the wrestling team at my high school (Brookline High School) has many sports (44, I believe). The Cross Coutnry team is number one in the state, and number five in New England. Of these fourty four sports, there is a concensus that wrestling has the second most intense practice regiment. Every week day is practice, most saturdays (pretty much ever Saturday for Varsity wrestlers) we compete, and we also often have practice on Sunday. Pretty much every practice one kid cries, vommits, or bleeds. And for every practice when noone cries, vommits, or bleeds, there's a practice where two kids do. Pre-season doesn't start until October, but I'm looking to get a headstart to avoid being the crying/vommitting/bleeding kid.
I'm doing running, and a lot of low-weight high-rep strength training. What I'm concerned about, and wrestlers, I need your advice, is if anyone knows what muscles are important for wrestling? Pectorals? Biceps? I've been working everything, but I was wondering if anyone knows what muscles to pin-point. After live wrestling for fourty five minutes, the muscles that are most sore are my upper back and pectorals. Does anyone have any advice on which muscles I should work? It would be much appreciated.
