The second drill is an alternating stand-up drill with a partner. The third drill is stand-up to a double leg drill. Coach Chertow emphasizes exploding on the bottom and encourages his wrestlers not to wait on bottom. These are great drills to incorporate daily into a coaches wrestling plan.
In this video clip below Coach Chertow has his wrestlers chain wrestle from the top position. He has his wrestlers do two drills from the top. The first drill is the cross wrist roll series where his wrestlers go from one tilt to the next scoring a plethora of points.
