I'm going to be wrestling this year. Plain and simple, are their any work out exercises that can help out before season?

ws4sb is a good routine. The RE days will be good to help with muscular endurance and add mass. The ME days will build some serious strength. Sprints after workouts and super sets that are written into the routine will help with endurance.

When does wrestling season begin?

Are you doing any technique work in the off-season or just weight training?

i believe in a month or so for highschool

Also i would check out elitefts logs and look for Joe defrancos training section. There is a highschool wrestlers log. You may get some good ideas from there.

Stick with the routine you are doing. You are making great progress for a change. You are way stronger than you used to be and that will help you a lot.

You can add some grip work to the end of your workouts without messing anything up. Try hanging from a chin-up bar for timed holds. That's pretty simple and effective.

For conditioning, you can pull a sled the day after your workouts. You can build a cheap/free sled out of a tire and some rope. Search around this site for some tips on sled pulling.

Block weight and hex weight holds are also good too. Any sort of thickbar work is beneficial. Wrist stuff is all over the board... thickbar wrist curls, thickbar reverse curls, sledge hammer levering, etc.

As long as your strength is improving in your big 3, don't worry too much about exercises that are is "wrestling specific." Once your lifts are good you can worry about that, but at the moment you'll find the most carryover from a good big 3.

Also, if this is your first year wrestling, don't cut any weight. Don't listen to whatever the hell your coach says, unless it has to do with fitting you into a particular spot (in which case, if i were you, I would go up a weight class). Looking at your strength levels you have no business cutting weight.
