Two time NCAA Champion and three time All-American at Oklahoma State University, Chris Perry, explains the importance of keeping knees wide as a leg rider. By being physical and maintaining wide knees, wrestlers will keep their opponent from high legging and maintain control on top.

Wide Knees

Drill Summary: When breaking the opponent down, bump into them and keep your knees wide while throwing your hips into their back. Make sure to keep your feet running forward and also focus on getting your opponent’s arm over their head.

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.

14x NCAA All American, Coley Stickels, provides athletes with a great dryland training exercise that is essential to modern swim technique and speed. This exercise is designed to develop scapular strength and increase scapular flexibility in a unique way.

Y’s & I’s

The athlete holds onto the straps connected above and while leaning backward at approximately a 30 degree angle with feet forward pulls his or her body upright by spreading the hands outward without bending the elbows. The exercise starts with the scapula fully apart and extended, and finishes with both scapula as close together as possible.
