Training Tips from Wrestling Icon, Dan Gable!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Friday, May 17, 2013

Dan Gable, former Olympic Champion and 15x NCAA National Championship Coach at the University of Iowa, shares bottom drills that can be performed with or without a partner.  Learn to get out of the bottom position and start attacking!

From flat, the athlete builds back to a base over and over. Then, the athlete gets off of his/her back and up to a base. Third, the athletes do mountain climbers or real runners from the par terre or flat position. They immediately then perform several hip heists. Fourth, the athletes work with a partner performing leg riding defensive tactics.

Take a look at an additional clip from the DVD, Dan Gable: Coaching Mental Toughness on the Mat.  Also, view other Dan Gable DVDs from our massive Wrestling DVD collection!
