Discover three different drills in this segment from 15x NCAA Championship Coach, Dan Gable. These exercises will help you work on leg attacks, setups, and escapes. Take advantage of the opportunity to learn from an Olympic champion!
See the detailed instruction and demonstration of the three drills in this clip above. Each athlete lets the opponent up and immediately takes him down for a set number of repetitions.
Dan Gable has collected 15 NCAA titles as Head Coach at the University of Iowa and was the 1972 Olympic Champion in Freestyle. Coach Gable displays how he puts athletes through a workout with a warm up and drilling on the feet.
Get ready for a practice or match with 50 reps of pummeling for an underhook, footfires with stance and motion, high knees, somersaults, army crawls/freestyle par terre position, and hip heists. Next, see snap down drills where one partner is on his knees and pushes into the partner who then executes a snap down.
