Rob Koll has built Cornell into a national power on the wrestling mat. For the past nine years, Cornell has finished in top 20 at the NCAA Championships - including runner-up in 2010, as well as winning eight straight league championships.

Now, you can get the same drills and techniques that Coach Koll uses in his room everyday.

Koll begins with a typical warm-up session that contains more than 15 exercises. His warm-up session takes 15 minutes and features a lot of gymnastics techniques to maximize your wrestlers' athleticism. The exercises start basic and move to advanced drills - all relating to wrestling in some way.

In addition, Koll includes more than 10 conditioning drills with a sport specific twist. These drills all feature full body motion and concentrate on quick starts and explosiveness.

To compliment the warm-up, you will see over 25 wrestling drills that Koll focuses on for 30 minutes to an hour every day in practice. These short offense and defense drills focus on technique, work on set-ups and foot motion, while developing conditioning, hip power and athleticism - all in a match-like setting. Among the techniques you'll see are shrugs, knee taps, high and low singles, bar arms, foot fighting and more.

Moving off the mat, Koll gives you his philosophy behind how he built his program to the level it is today. He touches on a number of topics, including:

  • Sleep deprivation - More sleep allows your athletes to convert short term memory to long term and build up muscle
  • Micro practices - get same amount of work from the team, but not in a team setting. Allows you to individualize technique and gives you increased contact with wrestlers - which in turn gets them to feel more connected to the program and coaches);
  • Practice phases - See different practice routines from October to December, January to February and for the last month of the year.
  • Strength Training - See the key to Cornell's success - volume and intensity. Koll discusses three different phases of strength training, which has resulted in his wrestlers have maintained or gained strength throughout the season.
  • 41 minutes. 2010.

Great warm-up routine and conditioning drills. He talks about practice planning for the year, which has helped me map out our team's year and practice routine. I have noticed a difference in that we're getting better practices more often. A definite must-watch for a coach before the season starts.

This DVD features a really good progressive tumbling series to teach body awareness. Coach Koll talks about his weekly practice format and season periodization. He shares several post practice conditioning exercises to be done in the wrestling room without additional equipment. Great examples of the technique drills that they include in practice daily. He doesn't go into great detail about Cornell's strength program, but talks about their philosophy throughout the season. Valuable insights on how their season long practice plans came about.
