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.
