We are smack dab in the middle of summer. What a great time for wrestlers. The long dark days of winter are gone and the best part of all? You don’t have to cut any weight!

Time to pack on some muscle.

Here is an upper body workout designed specifically for wrestlers. It involves presses, pulls, grip work, core and exercise that just aren’t for “normal” athletes. Wrestlers are not “normal” athletes. We just aren’t.

Before you start here is what you need to know:

  • You have to warm up.

Don’t be lazy and skip out on this. Don’t know what to do? Check out this video and your all set.

  • This should only take you 45-55 minutes to complete.

Yeah you heard me right 55 minutes max. Unless you are a body builder or an Olympic lifting competitor you do not need to spend more than 45-55 minutes per workout. Just because you spend 2 hours in the gym every day it doesn’t mean that you are tough. It probably means that you talk too much and are inefficient…..Bro.

  • “AMRAP” means as many rounds as possible.
  • “DB” means dumbbell.
  • “OH” means overhead.
  • If you have a questions just refer to the video.

Alright enough chit chat. You ready?
