A lifting program for wrestlers must be:
1. Specific to the wrestlers needs and goals.
2. Designed to maximize performance on the mat, not just “be a tough workout.”
3. Take into account the equipment and facilities the wrestler has access to.
I’ve learned a lot in the 10+ years I have been designing lifting programs for wrestlers.
As a result, I’ve been able to see the effectiveness and carryover of a lot of exercises.
So, I decided to put together a list of the Top 4 lower body exercises to include in a lifting program for wrestlers.
Obviously putting them into a well-designed program is a whole other animal, but I do include a couple quick samples at the end.
Anyway, here are, in no particular order, my Top 4 exercises for a lifting program for wrestlers.
