With University of Virginia Head Coach Steve Garland you will learn about the intangibles of drilling and how to drill properly. The ‘Underhook Drill’ shown by Coach Garland is a creative way to get wrestlers warmed up and ready to go without the mindless slogging (slow + jogging) so common in practice rooms of today.
Wrestlers will become much more comfortable with the underhook position and have more fun as the warm up becomes more of a game. Preventing staleness is a key for being successful in wrestling and Coach Garland has shown a great drill to get the room fired up and excited to practice.
Former All-American and current Head Coach at Virginia, Steve Garland, will show you how to secure more double leg takedowns. The ‘Trail Leg Drill’ is something your wrestlers can practice to work on the setup phase of a double leg.
Avoid going on both legs and using just your arms to get a double leg takedown.
