featuring Ken Chertow, US Olympian;

2x Junior World Champion, Midlands Champion and Outstanding Wrestler.
Coach Chertow coached at both Ohio State and Penn State where his teams won the National Duals and finished in the top 5 at NCAA Championships 75% of the time.You can learn from Coach Chertow personally at his year round and summer Gold Medal Training Camp.
Olympian Ken Chertow has developed his Gold Medal Training Camp System into one of the biggest and best in the nation.

In the first part of his drill series, Coach Chertow covers a variety of drills from neutral, top, and bottom positions, including:
- The 7 Basic Skills - Virtually all moves in wrestling are based on some combination of the 7 basic skills. Stance, motion, changing levels, penetration, lifting, back-arching, and back-stepping are combined into shadow drills in order to strengthen wrestling fundamentals.
- Bottom Position Drills - Practice switches, sit outs and rolls with a partner in quick bursts to develop speed and constant motion in order to improve your position and score.
- Top Position Drills - Learn to develop constant top pressure on the bottom man and to follow his hips as he attempts reversals in order to keep control of the match.
- Hip Heist Drills - Develop the hip heist in order to improve on moves requiring strong hip motion like twisters, sit outs, switches, and freestyle turns.
These drills teach basic concepts that all wrestlers need. The drills can be incorporated into wrestling plans for wrestlers of any age and skill level, while even the most experienced coach can gain from the skill sequences taught in this video. Most importantly, the drills presented in this video are meant to give your wrestler the mental edge in competition, so that they will--in Coach Chertow's own words--"Rise to the Occasion!"
47 minutes. 2012.Weight Room to Wrestling Room
with Dave Malecek, University of Wisconsin - La Crosse Head Coach;
5x conference coach of the year; 5 straight WIAC conference championships (2007-10); Five top 3 finishes in the DIII National Tournament in six seasons; 2007 NCAA Rookie Coach of the Year; All-American wrestler at UNI.
Add a new twist to the old classics for conditioning.
Conditioning is a critical part of any wrestling program. Having coached his UW-LaCrosse Eagles to top three finishes in each of his first five seasons, Dave Malacek has proven he can transfer work done in the weight room to the wrestling mat.
In this wrestling DVD, Coach Malecek demonstrates many of his favorite exercises that emphasize the specific needs of wrestlers. He shows you how to make simple strength training drills into wrestling specific activities that can be done before, during, or after practice. Each exercise is demonstrated, and then followed up with a wrestling drill/situation for your athletes to better understand the importance of the exercise.
Coach Malecek provides exercises that vary from old classics - such as pushups - to the trending tools of today - like battle ropes and resistance bands. All exercises can be completed in the wrestling room instead of traveling to the weight room. Exercises covered include:
- Push-Ups and Bench Press - Your wrestler will explode to his feet from the bottom referee's position and recover quicker when under a sprawled opponent.
- Cleans and Squats - Develop your wrestler's ability to return his opponent to the mat, to perform a stand-up, and to clear an opponent's collar-tie into a pass-by.
- "Stretchy Ropes" - Use these resistance bands to strengthen your wrestler's snap downs, snapping his opponents' heads down to the mat to score easily.
- Battle Ropes - Wave your wrestler's arms repeatedly in small or big motions to improve forearm and grip strength, leading to dominant hand fighting skills.
- Curls - Conditioning the biceps with curls allows your wrestler to win the underhook position.
- Quick Feet - These agility exercises improve movement from the neutral position, ensuring quick feet during takedown finishes and stand-ups.
When your athletes complete wrestling drills that mimic the actions of their conditioning exercises they will become more invested in their workouts. These exercises, when incorporated into tough practices, will help your team get over that "fear of failure" and enable them to get past the point of exhaustion and to still push hard.
Strength and conditioning is crucial to the development of any wrestler. If you are having a hard time setting up a strength and conditioning program to maximize your wrestlers' potential, this video allows you to get more specific training in a very efficient format.
