    endurance training

    does anyone do endurance training for like sports? it's wrestling season (in hs, i dunno about collegiate), and since Cal doesn't have wrestling, ima do some endurance training and takea break from lifting (i dont' have much time to lift w/ my current schedule anyway) until i can get into an open rasslin' tourney or sth

    I have REALLY bad genetics when it comes to endurance (it shouild be genetic since my twin bro has the same problem). my goal is to last, so i won't "gas out," cuz i usually beat ppl by pinning htem in the 1st or second round by strength, but if i wrestle sombody as strong as me, i'll get tired by the 3rd (mostly all my losses are from tiring out on the 3rd). my goal is to use a lot of strength and not gas out within six minutes about. is there a specific routine for endurance (i think i got the strength, but i can't use full strength for the 3 rounds) tha can help me on this?

    More reps. Do long distance running. I don't know specifics or specific routines, but there are a bunch of things you can do to help increase your endurance. Anyone?

    are there any good routines based on experience, cuz just like bbing there might be tons of useless books and mags.

    HAHA, a fellow wrestler, bro, im going to tell you what i learned myself. When wrestling season approaches. The best way to condition, is to wrestle. and wrestle a lot. Don't lift weights. just keep wrestling. find a way to get you and a bunch of wrestler together and wrestle like crazy till the season approaches. Take it from me. Last year I took second in the districts. If you have to make weight, well, thats different. But if you only need to cut ssay 5-6 lbs. Don't even try, it will come naturally with wrestling. Watch your diet and good luck with the season. The endurance will come. You getting tired in 3rd is actually a good sign too. It means you put out a lot of effort in the first two rounds. No matter how conditioned you are, you should be tired the third round.

    American cars are like fat people, sure, they have a lot of power, but they're not built well, and they have all that useless weight, plus they make both make funny noises.

    feel free to aim me, nejar462 im on a lot. Don't know much to warn you dudes, but im good at conversations.
