WWR_THUMBOn Episode 13 of the World Wrestling Resource Podcast, we talk World Cup, Olympic Trials and the preservation of wrestling at Northern State and Cleveland State with Jon McGovern and Terry Brands.

Coach McGovern and coach Brands first talk about the viral video that’s floating around the internet with the fight between two Russian wrestlers escalating to the point where it included coaches and spectators.

The discussion then turns to the U.S. performance at the World Cup and coach Brands explains the performance of past Hawkeye wrestlers Tony Ramos and Brent Metcalf. Then we move on to the discussion of the Olympic Trials coming to Iowa City in 2016.

Then we move into a spirited back-and-forth about the issues at Cleveland State and who or what can be done to make sure this doesn’t continue to keep happening in wrestling. Coach Brands and host Jason Bryant go back and forth on the matter.

WWR Olympic Wrestling Countdown (59 days left)

July 11th, 2013 (World Wrestling Resource News)

World Wrestling Resource Olympic Countdown:   59 Days  (TIME TO KICK IT IN THE BUTT!) 

# of Days Left until September 8th, Olympic Decision on Wrestling in the 2020 Olympic Games 

World Wrestling Quote of the Week From Dan Gable in WIN Magazine:

Dan Gable: “It’s time to kick it in the butt right now. There are peaking and timing factors that will help us win the vote and eventually become a core sport again. I noticed that we are starting to get a little cocky. We just had these good four months and feel like we’ve won. We haven’t yet. As a leader, I know we can’t just coast. In wrestling you can score any time, any second because you are supposed to be engaged. Regarding FILA, one of the problems is that there is a difference in cultures of those on the board.”  For the full interview click here

World Wrestling News/Updates:   FILA announces wrestlers from around the world will compete in ancient Olympia (July 20-21).  Click here for more information on the event

WRESTLING EXPLOSIVE MOVEMENTS

The Volt training philosophy centers around building explosive wrestling. Each workout begins with an explosive movement designed to activate the central nervous system and recruit Type IIb muscle fibers.

WRESTLING INJURY PREVENTION

It doesn’t matter how strong or powerful an wrestler is if they are sidelined with an injury. Every Volt training program prioritizes injury prevention and features a dedicated section of sport-specific injury prevention movements during each training session.

This site allows teams and wrestlers for individualized custom made strength training programs to fit the needs of your wrestling goals and season.

Wrestling Strength Periodization Cycling Phases 

Every Volt training program is properly periodized to take a wrestler through a variety of distinct phases and training cycles. Based on the timing of your season, Volt creates a year-long training calendar that provides the perfect structure for your workouts.  The intensity of each workout varies over time between different periods or “phases,” peaking wrestlers performance at just the right time in their wrestling season.  GPP phases (gradual progression phase, hypertrophy phase, strength training, power, and unload phases are cycled in at the right time of the season to allow for peak power & strength.  Low-intensity Unload weeks are periodically scheduled to allow time to rest and recover, keeping athletes healthy and avoiding overtraining.

Instructional Videos                                                                                                 Instructional videos provide a visual step-by-step guide to ensure proper technique and safety while lifting.
