Biggest Factors In Female Wrestler Success

This post, in a way, is an offshoot from my last post (What Sets Top Wrestlers Apart From Everyone Else?). The study I’ll be reviewing today was performed by many of the same researchers the year after publishing their findings on the 92 male wrestlers. This time, the researchers elected to put 35 female wrestlers through the same testing to…

What Sets Top Wrestlers Apart From Everyone Else?

As you probably know, I am on a never ending quest to identify what separates great wrestlers from the rest of the pack. In fact, I’ve written a post entitled Physiological Profile Of The Ideal Wrestler. In it I review 5 research studies that examine various qualities of wrestlers at different levels. And while I’m regularly looking for more studies,…

Do This, Shoot Faster

As you remember from my last post (click here to get caught up), you know I’ve been in search of a specific test(s) that is correlated with shot speed. Well, over the last few weeks I’ve been able to set up a meeting at Binghamton University and test their wrestlers’ shot speed and shot power. I also tested their distances…

A Test To Determine Shot Speed?

If you frequent my blog, you know that I’m on a mission to identify the best program and exercises to increase shot speed and power.

A picture of Kyle Dake and Dickie White.
Hi, I’m Dickie (the author of this blog). Here I am with my good buddy, Kyle Dake. While he doesn't have a nice coat like me, he is pretty good at wrestling. Here's what he said about my training system:

Before I began lifting using Dickie's system my wrestling skills were getting slightly better. I've now been lifting under his guidance for more than 5 months and I have begun to dominating ALL of my competition. At first I had little faith in Dickie and his program, but now I would run into a wall if he told me I would get stronger! I know it sounds insane, but I would. The bottom line is Dickie is an expert and knows what he is talking about. If you want to defeat those kids whom you've always lost to and reach a level you never thought possible, I suggest you start lifting using Dickie's system immediately.

-Kyle Dake, 4X NCAA Division 1 National Champion
