Wrestling Training - Agility

Wrestling agility drills with the Myosource Kinetic Bands are beneficial for building quick muscle contractions for more efficient wrestling moves. These drills are great for wrestlers to work on coordination, balance, endurance, and stamina. Wrestlers need to perform agility drills that involve a lot of lateral and multi-directional movements on the wrestling mat. While wearing the Myosource Kinetic Bands, wrestlers should perform agility drills working at 100% for the best results possible. Fatigue is common so wrestlers who use the Myosource Kinetic Bands for agility have an advantage of using resistance to mimic their wrestling moves and increase endurance. This enables wrestlers to handle the intense wear and tear on their body. Wrestlers have to perform a lot of quick movements and have to maintain power so the fast twitch muscle fibers do not fatigue.

 

Agility is a combination of wrestlers putting their skills together with speed, endurance, strength, and coordination. When a wrestler puts all these things together they are able to maintain balance throughout their matches no matter what they come against. Wrestlers face the continuous changes in the moves of their opponents and must be able to stand firm under any of those conditions, as well as perform their own moves. Wrestlers have to perform quick moves laterally, up and down, and angled, while twisting, turning, jumping, starting, and stopping. The Myosource Kinetic Bands are great for wrestlers to increase their agility because the resistance bands allow wrestlers to perform all their skills and moves to become more aware of their body in order to make the necessary stops and starts needed in a wrestling match.

The Myosource Kinetic Bands are an inexpensive and easy-to-use tool for wrestlers to increase their agility. The resistance puts tension on the muscles so they are able to contract quickly and maintain body control. The objective of agility training with the Myosource Kinetic Bands is so wrestlers are able to complete their moves so quickly and technically sound that their opponent is not able to prevent the attack. Wrestlers need to stay on their feet when an opponent is trying to take them down, shoot out to get an escape, and make moves to prevent being pinned. In order for a wrestler to control their body in so many different positions it requires quickness, balance, and coordination.

Wrestling Agility Exercises:

  • The wrestler will put on the Myosource Kinetic Bands.
  • The wrestler will stand with their feet in a line and jump into the air, switching feet while off the ground and landing with the opposite foot in front.
  • As soon as the wrestler lands they will immediately jump up again, continuing to switch feet in the air every time.
  • The wrestler should jump on their toes and work on their balance and stability with each jump.
  • After 15-20 reps and 3 sets the wrestler will stand with their feet together and jump from side to side. The wrestler should jump as far laterally as possible and work on balance, speed, and coordination with each jump.
  • The wrestler will add forward and back jumps to build a combination of moves, each time landing on their toes and quickly jumping again. This is to create move coordination while transferring from one movement to the next.

Wrestling Line Agility Drills:

  • The wrestler's will put on the Myosource Kinetic Bands.
  • The wrestler's will line up in four lines.
  • The wrestler's will start with the first person in each line and perform drills like forward rolls up to wrestling stance, backward rolls, karaoke, high knee sprints, bear crawls, seal walk, one knee slides, etc.
  • The wrestler's perform each drill all the way down the mat until their entire row is finished and then back to the starting line.

Wrestling Crab Crawls:

  • The wrestler will put on the Myosource Kinetic Bands.
  • The wrestler will get into a 4 point stance, placing the fingers tips out in front on the mat with the knees bent.
  • The wrestler will rest on their knees until the coach gives the start signal.
  • When the coach signals, the wrestler will get up on their toes to begin the crawl.
