    Your first step on the long road to success should be learning about lower case letters - what they are and how to implement them in "alive" training. Then worry about wrestling.

    I've started doing deFranco's modified westside program for skinny bastards (http://www.defrancostraining.com/art...s_westside.htm) and it's working out OK so far. That's only for when you're out of your season I think, I'm sure that your wrestling coach will put you through a wrestling-specific program during the season.

    EDIT: Do what works for you though; I was in ok shape before I started the program, so if you haven't really worked out before you might want to build up some basic strength first. There are tons of weightlifting threads on here, do a search and play around until you find something that works for you.

    I started when I was about that age, and it didn't stunt my growth or anything like that (I'm about 6'1" now, although skinny because I didn't keep up with it consistently). Someone like TBM should check this, but in Wellness class Soph year they said it's fine for adolescents to lift weights. The only thing is that they shouldn't do 1 rep max lifts because the developing skeletal system can't handle it.

    I usually go pretty light when lifting weights. Usually benchpress maybe 50 pounds 25 times. Then I might work on my legs. I only lift weights maybe 30-45 minutes a day.

    Here's an idea, ask the coach.

    I'm serious. Tell him that you want to show up as prepared as possible an ask for stuff to work on. It will give you insight into his training philosophy, and will make you stand out from the other people that signed up. It's not sucking up, it's showing your willing to go the extra mile and work hard.

    Last year my brother-in-law, Marco, was an wide reciever and defensive back coach for a freshman football team. When varsity got a new head coach, the first thing Marco did was send the coach a email introducing himself. They got to talking, one thing lead to another, and my bro-in-law ended up the guys new right-hand man on offense.

    I second this. My dad was a wrestling coach for a few years, and he always preferred the guys who bothered to train outside of practice, and ask him for training tips. Those guys were much more likely to get playing time. Don't take your strength training too far. It's okay to be small in wrestling. Last time I was around HS leagues, 102 was the lightest weight class. Those guys were fast, squirrely, and really fun to watch.

    You'd be better off masturbating than using those easy weights. At least then you'd have something to show for all the effort (e.g. a sticky hand). Stick with calisthenics for now. If you're joining a good wrestling team, ask your coach when would be the best time for you to start weight training.
