    I'm currently on the Arnold routine posted in the archives after a couple months on the christophers. I'm thinking of switching back to a three day split and doing cardio in between simply because I'm losing all my stamina towards the end of a round. The I proceed to get worked because I'm too tired. :wtc:

    What do you all do?

    mid-season is too late to start working on your GPP.....for in-season training you should stick with two full body workouts per week concentrating on legs, core, and back

    Should I throw in cardio? I always though that lifting and getting the heart rate up like 4 or 5 times a week in the gym lifting was almost equivalent to cardio.

    I don't really know where this came from so it is probably wrong. Advice?

    Try the Bas Rutten MMA workout. Heavy weight lifting isn't all that beneficial for wrestling because you don't want to gain weight. Higher reps and plymotrics are more important. Try doing fast jumping pushups for 30 seconds, then 30 seconds of an ab workout, then 30 seconds jumping squats or plyometric high jumps doing all this with no break inbetween your sets and keep doing this. Isometric excercise is also good because half the time you are exerting so much effort but aren't actually moving. Weight lifting itself isn't gonna help you that much in wrestling, it might actually make you gas faster and gain weight when you don't want to.

    Of course you want to be strong, but isometrics and endurance is more important than having a good bench. What I was saying was HEAVY weight-low rep weight lifting isn't as beneficial.

    I guess I should just keep on doing what I'm doing then. I did take a pretty hard wang to the head last night. That could have been what fucked me up :hsugh:
