Strong mental toughness leads to good wrestling technique, tactics, strength, conditioning, flexibility, recovery, and nutrition. In this lecture, legendary coach Dan Gable presents the importance of mental toughness with on the mat demonstrations and through motivational messages. Coach Gable takes you through a practice session detailing at least five drills in the following areas: Warm-up, standing offense and defense, bottom position, top position, and recovery/conditioning. The drills presented will give your athletes an attitude that "I can take anyone down at anytime ... they can't take me down ... no one can ride or turn me ... I can control anyone." In short, complete mental toughness! Gable credits all of his success on the mat - both as an athlete and as a coach - to strong mental toughness. With this video, your athletes will gain the mental toughness needed to be successful on the mat and in life.

Awesome video. Gable has the best mentality for wrestling in the world, and he tells you how to gain this same mentality in this DVD. To go along with this DVD, i recommend reading Heart of a Champion by Bob Richards. Gable uses parts of this book in the video to teach, and it is a fantastic book. the drills that he incorporates in the video also help athletes gain a mentality of dominance.
