Wrestling, like many other Mixed Martial Arts disciplines focuses on a combination of both physical strength and skill. To be successful in a wrestling match the objective is to pin your opponent to the ground. Training sessions are often split equally between strength and technique sessions as each are essential in the mastery of the sport.
Wrestling, being one of the older Mixed Martial Arts forms, has a range of different styles which all follow different rules and guidelines. The two most common styles which are currently practiced in the Summer Olympic games are Greco-Roman and Freestyle Wrestling.
Wrestling combines grappling, takedowns and clinching to gain control of your opponent and requires a large amount of physical strength and general fitness.
Wrestling is a discipline that can be trained both individually and with a partner. Train Alta partner coaches recommend beginning by learning the basics of wrestling and developing an understanding of the objective of the sport. Learning how to perform moves correctly and applying the correct techniques is also essential to your training program.
Weight training is a popular way for wrestlers to develop their physical strength and build muscle. Our trainalta partner coaches suggest focusing on compound exercises that use more than one area of the body during training. This creates muscle habits which can then be implemented into partner sparring workouts where grappling and takedown techniques are trained.
By training wrestling at a Train Alta partner location you can improve your overall health and fitness. Wrestling is an effective way to stay in shape as training is full body focused and works largely on building strength and muscle mass.
There are many benefits of training Wrestling including:
