    im considering doing wrestling next year, what should i do to start training now? im like 5'12"-6' 169lbs 12%body fat. i usualy go to the gym 3 or more times a week, but when i cant get to the gym i workout some at home. I also have a bike with flat tires that i might fix and start riding. What should i do to prepare for wrestling? ive never done it before and i dont know any "moves" or rules or anything.. any help would be great.

    I wrestled in high school for a year. Definetley focus on your core. Hips, lower back and abs. Have you heard of the Bas Rutten MMA workout? Its great for wrestling as well. Work your grip too.

    Run, Run, Run, and Run some more. The best way to get in shape for wrestling is to wrestle, if you can find an open gym somewhere for wrestling then that is a good place to go. I wrestled for 7 years, it's a great sport and the things you learn in wrestling carry over well into other sports.

    endurance and most of all wrestling is the best way to condition. If you actually want to learn how to do it then you'll have to be taught by someone, which is pretty much mandatory for any form of fighting.
