By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Saturday, October 17, 2015

Three time All-American and U.S. Olympian, Ken Chertow, loves to use the “Reversal Drill” to help his wrestlers practice their reverses while conditioning them at the same time. Athletes will be challenged to pull off reversals quickly, which will translate to more effective moves during a match.

Reversal Drill

Drill Summary: Wrestlers get with a partner and see how many reversals both of them can make in five seconds. You can change it up to only allow certain types of moves as well in order to help wrestlers develop certain techniques.

Ken Chertow, U.S. Olympian and three time Academic All-American at Penn State University, teaches you how to execute a “Sweep Double” takedown. By using misdirection, you can throw your opponent off, change levels, and secure a double leg before they even know what hit them.

Sweep Double

Drill Summary: From an over-tie, the wrestler sets up their opponent, grabs a high single, ducks under, changes directions and finally gets a double leg. The key to this move is changing levels and directions quickly.

Attack Out of Frontal Assault Position!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Saturday, October 17, 2015

Ken Chertow, three time NCAA All-American at Penn State University, loves to use the frontal assault position to control his opponents. Chertow knew he wasn’t the quickest wrestler, so he had to find other ways to shoot, and this position was one of the most effective for him due to its versatility. 

Frontal Assault Position

Drill Summary: The drilling wrestler begins this technique by sprawling on top of a partner. From there, the wrestler can get a front headlock, underhook, front quarter, snake and many other effective moves. Coach Chertow stresses using this position as a strong wrestler, as being aggressive is the key to success.

Train With a Partner to Develop More Strength!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Saturday, October 17, 2015

U.S. Olympian wrestler, Ken Chertow, presents three drills that help athletes become stronger in matches. The drills shown in this clip are high intensity bursts, which will improve the core endurance of wrestlers needing to add to their explosiveness.

Partner Strength Drills

Drill Summary: The first drill is the Float Drill, where one partner gets in a base position on the ground and the other floats back and forth over top of them. Go for about 10 seconds of intense training, then switch partners.

The second drill is the Break Down Base Drill. In this drill, the partner on the bottom takes their stance, and the partner on top tries to break them out of it. The wrestler on bottom should do everything they can to stay in a good base. Go for 10 seconds, then switch partners.

The third and final drill is the Flip Drill. One wrestler is on bottom in a good base, while the other comes up to the side of the bottom wrestler, puts their hands underneath their partner’s stomach, and flips up and over their partner back and forth. Go for 10 seconds, then switch.
