Horizontal Jump To Box

I just learned about this exercise a few months ago and it’s already making a huge impact. The wrestlers who are using this are enjoying the challenge. They’re also increasing the distance they cover in both the standing and seated horizontal jumps. I’m having similar success. I’m finally consistently jumping about 10 feet after many months. I think the biggest…

Curl Press

The Curl Press is a great compound exercise for building upper body strength for wrestling. Please keep in mind that if your shoulders don’t/can’t tolerate pressing overhead, then this obviously isn’t a good fit for you. If that’s the case, send me an email at dickie@wrestler-power.com. Let me know and we’ll work on some alternatives. The last thing you want…

This shows a trap bar deadlift in progress. The photo is focused on the lifter's lower body so only his legs and the trap bar are shown.

Jump Deadlifts

Jump Deadlifts are one of my favorite ways to increase power in wrestlers. Why? Because they’re super easy to implement AND they’re proven in research to be more effective than Power Cleans. Don’t believe me? Well, I’ve got the research to prove it. Read this post to learn more- Maximizing Your Power Output (Without Power Cleans). Anyway, like I said,…

Hip Thrust

The Hip Thrust is the best way to increase glute strength. Because I’ve written a post on it before (Glute Strengthening For Wrestlers), I won’t get into detail as to why that’s important. But, to summarize that post, it will improve your hip strength and power for wrestling. That’s pretty important, right? However, from what I’ve found by working with…

So, today, I just want to go over the exercise itself as well as variations to consider once you have mastered the basics. The Good Morning is one of the best ways to strengthen the muscles that are active when…

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
