JJ Trained Wrestling Summer Training

Summer Training

Jeff Wichern, a coach with the Eden Prairie (Minn.) Eagles Youth Wrestling Program, agrees. He says strength training doesn't necessarily mean lifting heavy weights and maxing out. Instead, he has his kids, focus on pull ups, pushups, and rope climbing. They also focus on plyometrics and circuit training, such as box jumps and speed hurdles. 

"We try to make it fun for our kids and they think they are just doing an obstacle course," says Wichern. "But really they’re working their tails off." Still, Wichern doesn’t expect his young athletes to make the same time commitment as they would during the season. "Make it short and sweet, don’t waste time and have fun.”
